    Default Vehicle Inspection Forms

    First I have looked through the forms and not really found what i was looking for. It would be of great help if i could see some examples of truck inspection forms for fire and rescue apparatus. If anyone could help by either posting it here, or sending to my e-mail that would greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Our dept assigns 4-5 ff's per truck, each to do an inspection once per month. I'm assigned to the tanker, and the 4 of pair off and check in pairs every other week. Fluids, lights, road test, equipment are all checked weekly that way. With 120 runs/year, not every truck is driven daily or weekly so it's an opportunity to do light maintainence. the "fleet maintainence dept" in out township is us!!

    Fred,

    these are for the weekly/monthly inspection checks of the fire vehicles. i am looking for ideas on how to set up a form that will effectively help the guys checks the equipment and create a record that shows the equipment is being checked. we have had a few issues lately with dead/missing/expired/gone equipment.

    thanks for the input so far.

    We just use a simple form we made in Microsoft Word. It lists the equipment by compartment with a little check box and a few lines for notes on the bottom. These are kept in a 3 ring binder in the cab and on the first of the month the previous months lists are removed and filed. BTW, our checks are done daily.

    I am the Chief Engineer at my company and before me the previous chief created sheets in which I added some items. We run betwween 18-25 calls a month and we do the checks on the engines twice a month due to not being active as we don't get tons of calls. We also have a Ford Squad & a Decon Trailer which has a gas generator and both of them get done once a month.

    Our checksheets are broken down to 5 different sheets as we have 1 Chief Engineer & 4 Asst. Both the engines & the squad have the same 5 different categories. Lights, Equipment, Run, Fluids & Tires. I created them in excel and laminated them and we use a wet erase marker that way you just wipe it off and just redo it.. We also enter the checksheets into the computer so we have records that we can always go back to to see if we had the same problem in the past...

    If you have any questions about any of the items or how we check them don't be afraid to ask.. Some people think these are a little overkill but we hardly ever had anything serious happen becuse things are caught before they have a chance to get bad...

    At the start of each shift, the engineer pulls the rig on the ramp, checks all lights, equipment, tools, fluids and runs the pump. He then fills out a checklist to document that all the equipment is on/not on the rig and that it is/is not in working order and fluids are at/not at proper levels.

    This way, fluids stay topped off and tools and equipment that dont work are removed for service and an imediate search can be started for anything that is missing.
