  • Vehicle Maintence

    We are trying to find a system to better keep track of issues that we have with our vehicles, whether a vehicle is out of service, needs a minor repair, has been repaired, or is due for scheduled maintenance. We are a smaller community that has 3 stations with 2 being manned full-time, minor repairs our staff takes care of themselves and larger repairs we have companies come in for. Currently we are using a paper system to pass along needs, but would like a software or website where we can enter needs and it can be checked from any location, this will help improve notification and accountability.

    So my question is, What are your agencies using and do you like it?

    I hope someone that can help you answers this question because I would love a system like this in my FD too!
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

      Most fire department management software is single computer based, but you may be able to find some support from those companies if they offer a server-based solution. Can't find out if you don't ask.

      Check, too with your local municipality or school system - they may be running a vehicle management system that you can piggy-back on. The same may be true with any company or organization needing fleet management.

      Bottom line is that you need a cloud server-based solution - even if you simply use a database or spreadsheet. I doubt you have the infrastructure to stand up your own server and netwo
      Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

        Fascinating. Mind telling me what language you were speaking?

            I don't want nothing to do with no clouds. I seen them pictures on the internets of all them naked movie stars. SCHIT seems to fall outta them kinda clouds.

            We are trying to get some spread sheet thing going at our dept. We are kinda between maintenance officers right now and don't have a good system.

            One ***. Chief has us trying a program called IAMRESPONDING for pages and such, he says you can track all of your maintenance on there.
            The fire service is about service to our fellow man.
            There is a trust that must not be broken and we are the keepers of that trust.

              I would hardly describe myself as a Geek. If I did I would have understood more of what you said other than cloud.

                We use Google Drive to host a spreadsheet (using Google Sheets) for the daily staffing of engines, crews, and dozers. I would think the same kind of thing could be done to track equipment needs. Nice thing is everybody who needs access can get to it from any computer or even a smart phone, also it is free.

                Most picked it up pretty quickly and even our most luddite captains figured out how to use it. I understand it is also able to track who made changes to it in case you have any pranksters.

                  This is nothing new. Any big trucking companies in your area? Go see their fleet manager or fleet maintenance department.

                    We use Fire programs for all aspects of our operations, including tracking vehicle maintenance.

                    Not perfect, but it seems to do what we want it to do.
