    Default Vehicle Inspection diagram


    I am looking for diagrams of fire apparatus(truck, engine, ambulance, utility vehicle, etc.) similar to the diagram that a car rental agency uses when they inspect a vehicle both pre and post use for damage. I want to be able to adapt this to the fire service and incorporate as part of a daily vehicle check. does anyone know of any website that I can go to print out such diagrams?

    Default truck diagrams

    You may want to contact your local fire apparatus dealers in your area and see if they have sample drawings or maybe even a drawing of the trucks in your departments fleet. You then could take some white-out and clean the pages up (hide demension and text you don't want).

    Use a copier to reduce or enlarge the pictures to suit your needs. Hope it helps.

    Cool diagrams

    I like your idea but depending on the size of the fleet and the exhuberance of the engineers you may find yourself swamped with drawings that are so marked up they will mean little. If they mark down every paint chip/scratch, ding, dent and small item you will get lost in the small stuff and unable to fix the major stuff. Our guys are pretty rough on the equipment as far as dents, dings and such. Good luck.

    We use a cheklist daily for equipment. We number each compartment and list the equipment in it. This on a simple sheet we made with MS Word. Damage to the rig or equipment is listed in the staion log and a damaged equipment form which is sent to the mechanic.

    Default Check lists

    Give VFIS a call. They have a "sugessted" check list for darn near everything, which can be adapted easily for your local needs. And they are available to you weither you are insured by their company or not.

    The "fire pyramid" is great, but do not forget the "fire square"...heat, fuel, oxygen, and the frie chief...remove any one of them and the fire will be put out.
