The next installment of our series on fire service vehicle operator duties involves a review and demonstration of the regular daily and ongoing inspection procedures for your apparatus.
Recent incidents have illustrated the need for documentation and classifying apparatus as out-of-service for maintenance-related issues. Daily and other regularly scheduled inspections of apparatus and equipment is much more than turning on lights and engaging the pump. It requires a thorough knowledge of all of the mechanical components and an understanding of their proper working condition. Review your department and manufacturers’ recommendations for in-service inspection practices.
