What emergency equipment is required on commercial vehicles?


Question from an NTEA member

Our fleet and end user partners are requesting we provide additional equipment they require on their vehicles as a motor carrier, such as fire extinguishers. What items do they need to have along these lines?
This is a common question as customers want vehicles delivered to various locations, equipped to meet motor carrier requirements.
