Good Job brother...Thats right Black and thanks for the picture to show everyone...
The heat indicator will change color if the ladder is placed too close to the exhaust of the truck. As we found out. . .oops! If staging a ladder prior to putting in service do so away from apparatus.
Also notice, the indicators have an expiration date. Many don't realize this especially on smaller departments which may not have a ladder testing program.
Your right Oldman...If for any reason the decal is removed on accident and another needs to be replaced in its place call your local dealer or sales rep they should be able to help you on this, or better yet when you have them tested and they pass they should be replaced at that time...Good Job Brother...
