MONTHLY MAINTENANCE IS THE 1ST SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH.
WBVFD has 8 trucks of various ages and repairs can really stack up. We take our stewardship of all equipment seriously. So each month all the firefighters and Fast support members arrive at the fires station at 9 am the on the first Saturday.
All the trucks are driven, filled with gas if necessary and put through a thorough systems checklist. All Equipment such as generators, jaws of life and safety gear is started and tested.
The FAST Rehab Van is driven and also put through a systems checklist. FAST also makes sure the van is well stocked for the next time we attend a fire.
Finally everyone turns in to sweep the bays, empty the trash and take care of general housekeeping chores. There is coffee and sometimes treats and quite a bit of laughter and camaraderie.
