The division is responsible for testing approximately 250 ladders on all apparatus along with spare ladders in the Logistics warehouse each year as set forth in the NFPA 1932 standard. We coordinate the program for testing fire hose throughout the District and update the data base on each piece of hose as set forth in the NFPA 1962 Standard. All inter-office mail is routed throughout the Districts 40 fire stations and 4 support buildings each day by our staff. While performing this task, we are able to deliver custodial supplies, office supplies, fire suppression equipment, oxygen tanks for medics, and replenish SCBA bottles. Our division is responsible for administering the Districts EMS supply program. We order and maintain all EMS inventory and deliver EMS supplies each day to each fire station.
