  1. Apparatus Inspection & Maintenance Sugar Land Fire Department Driver/Operator-Pumper Academy Spring 2003

  2. Apparatus Inspection & Maintenance

  3. Maintenance v.s. Repair

  4. Preventive Maintenance • To ensure apparatus reliability • To reduce the frequency and cost of repairs • To lessen out-of-service time Purpose of preventive maintenance—to try to eliminate unexpected and catastrophic apparatus failures that could be life and/or property threatening

  5. Systematic Maintenance Apparatus Inspection

  6. Pierce Warranty Claim Form

  7. Cleanliness

  8. Washing & Waxing

  10. Washing & Waxing

  11. Washing & Waxing • Once a new vehicle’s finish is properly cured, you may use garden hoses with nozzles or pressure washers may be used to speed cleaning of the apparatus • In addition to pressure cleaning, hand wash with soapy water on a regular basis to ensure proper cleanliness.

  12. Glass Care

  13. Interior Cleaning

  14. Interior Cleaning • Do not use volatile cleaning agents or protective dressings specified by the manufacturer • Be sure that the vehicle is well ventilated when using any cleaning products inside the cab or crew-riding area

  15. Waxing • Follow the apparatus manufacturer’s instructions regarding the application of wax or similar polishes. • Generally, do not apply waxes or polishes until the paint is at least 6 months old • Wash and dry the apparatus before waxing • Apply wax with a soft cloth and buff with a soft cloth or mechanical buffer.

  16. Specific Components & Systems Maintenance

  18. Braking System • Most large, modern fire apparatus are equipped with air-operated braking systems • Smaller late-model apparatus and some older large apparatus are equipped with hydraulic braking systems • Most newer apparatus, regardless of the brake system, are equipped with antilocking braking systems (ABS)

  21. Electrical Load Management System • Purpose of apparatus electrical load management systems (ELMS) is to prevent an overload of the vehicle’s electrical generation system • ELMS Load Sequencer turns various lights on at specified intervals • ELMS load monitor “watches” the system for added electrical loads that threaten to overload the system

  22. Electrical Load Management System • When an overload condition occurs, the ELMS load monitor shuts down less important electrical equipment to prevent overloading. This process is called load shedding

  26. Chassis • Some essential characteristics of oil are corrosion protection, foaming, sludging, and carbon accumulation, which may be controlled by the refiner. • Different types of engine oils should not be mixed.
