     I do not know if you need to be concerned with the Fire Trucks setting up on the Bridge or not.  If the Fire Truck needs to set up on the bridge with any of its ladders or other reaching devices (rescue work) the outrigger load form the Fire Truck is very large.  I do not remember the load but if this is a viable load case let me know and I will look it up.

Does anyone know where H20 loading comes from and what it defines?  I'm working on a small bridge and we want to be sure that we're designing for the correct loads.  Also, is there a special spec for say, firetruck loads?  Thanks in advance.
