Preventative Maintenance Services
When managing a fleet of fire apparatus or emergency vehicles, Preventative Maintenance, or PM Service, is critical to ensuring an acceptable operational readiness percentage. In short, your apparatus is useless unless it is fully functioning and ready for the challenges presented by your community. That’s why PM Service is so important. All equipment breaks down and will need repair eventually, but when you put your apparatus and emergency vehicles on a PM Program with F.I.S. On Site Service, you can be sure that your apparatus is ready when you need it. In addition, you’ll always be up to date when it comes to the condition of your apparatus and what kind of repairs and service your apparatus will need in the months and years ahead. At F.I.S.On Site Service we offer a full range of Preventative Maintenance Programs, (PM Service) to meet the needs of any department or company, regardless of size or budget. We fit the program to fit your needs. PM is a key part of fleet management. PM Service is one of the few services that can actually help control costs by keeping vehicle conditions at optimum and by alerting you to potential small problems before they become major problems.If you are interested in a PM Program for you Fire Apparatus or Emergency Vehicle Fleet please contact F.I.S.

Annual Aerial Inspections
Aerial fire trucks are an essential part of any department’s apparatus fleet. But when it comes to aerials, one question more than any other occupies the fleet manager; how safe is our aerial equipment? A lot of accidents occur when using the aerial. Many times those accidents are related to driver and operator error. Human related accidents are something every firefighter strives to eliminate, but Aerial equipment failure is unacceptable, and unnecessary. Metal fatigue, cracking, and loose bolts are all common aerial problems that can easily be identified during an annual aerial inspection. Without inspections, these small problems can result in major accidents, even including death. At F.I.S. On Site Service we offer an annual aerial inspection program designed to work with any aerial fire apparatus and any company or department. And because costs are always an issue, we offer competitive pricing to make annual pump inspections affordable. If your company or fire department is currently in need of aerial testing, contact F.I.S. On Site Service today and eliminate the worry of aerial failure.
