5. TANDEM HARNESS & CONTAINER SYSTEM INITIAL ACCEPTANCE REQUEST

A proposal from Rick Boardman & David Gould together with supporting paperwork had been circulated with the Agenda requesting that the SWS 'Fire' 2R-C Tandem container and harness system be accepted for use. Included in the paperwork were emergency procedures for the equipment from the 'Fire' Tandem manual, together with the draft BPA emergency drills for the system.

Rick Boardman reported that the manufacturers stipulate that the use of the Strong Master reserve is not to be used in the equipment. However, other suitably sized reserves are permitted. Also, when replacing parts, only the manufacturers original components can be used.

Following consideration, it was proposed by Rick Boardman and seconded by Dave Major that the SWS 'Fire' 2R-C Tandem container and harness system including the Emergency drills be accepted for general use.
