There's not a requirement for Fire Trucks per se, but there is a minimum
loading requirement of HS-20 or Alternate Military Loading - 2 - 24K axles spaced 4' apart.
Generally, Alternate Military Loading governs short span bridges (<39') relative to HS-20.
Good Luck!

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.
