Fleet Management - Unsung HeroesMay 12, 2020
Fleet Management is behind the scenes ensuring emergency operations are able to get to their destination quickly and reliably. Our mechanics maintain emergency vehicles in a constant state of readiness so emergency personnel can continue to provide critical services. One of the ways Fleet is doing this during the COVID-19 outbreak is by working in two shifts Monday – Saturday. This not only provides support to critical operations but also utilizes appropriate social distancing guidelines. Another way Fleet ensures emergency readiness is by replacing vehicles in a timely manner. The newest fire truck is gearing up to go in service next month. The Type 3 brush truck was purchased in July 2019 and is undergoing final inspections. Fire trucks have a 16 year life on the frontlines with an additional 10 life as a reserve vehicle.
