Full Description

Safeguard responders with the latest requirements for PASS! Get the 2018 edition of NFPA 1982 to stay up-to-date and protect lives.

Personal Alert Safety Systems (PASS) make it possible for emergency responders to signal for help if they get lost, disoriented, trapped, injured, or run out of breathing air while operating at an emergency.

Provisions in NFPA 1982: Standard on Personal Alert Safety Systems address labeling, design, performance, testing, and certification for PASS that monitor an emergency responder's motion and automatically emit an audible alarm if the responder becomes incapacitated — allowing the PASS to be manually activated if assistance is needed.

Significant updates in the 2018 edition help departments identify and prioritize critical failures, before tragedies occur.

A new failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) for PASS devices helps users identify and prioritize critical failures that could have a serious effect on the safety and reliability of a PASS in the expected operating environment.

Other changes bring the Standard current with new technologies:
  • New referenced publications and updated informational references
  • Changes to the PASS annunciator -- now driven by an alarm sequence of eight steps -- along with revisions to the frequency of sweep and tone, and the prealarm sound specification
  • A new low power source warning signal reflecting the introduction of rechargeable batteries to SCBA/PASS alarms
  • A new requirement that the battery must be discharged to the low battery trip point voltage or the low battery trip point capacity remaining percentage
  • Changes that harmonize NFPA 1982 with NFPA 1801: Standard on Thermal Imagers for the Fire Service
Order now. Compliance with the latest edition of NFPA 1982 is essential for protecting the health and safety of emergency responders who depend on PASS.
