At Jon’s Mid America Fire Apparatus, we are known as “The Fire Truck People.” But not only do we buy and sell used fire trucks — we repair them too. Our on-site repair shop can do everything from basic maintenance to complicated repairs.

Jon’s Mid-America explains the importance of regular fire truck maintenance and highlights the types of fire truck repairs we usually perform.

Regular Fire Truck Maintenance

Any fire station that has a fire apparatus should do weekly or biweekly maintenance checks themselves. Regularly monitoring your fire truck and noting any issues will catch a problem before it becomes a major repair.

Firefighters should be regularly checking lights, vehicle fluids, water tank levels, tire pressure, and anything else that could affect the functionality of the apparatus.

Preventative Maintenance

Aside from weekly checks, it is important to have preventative maintenance performed on your fire apparatus at least once a year. This will ensure all the necessary parts of your truck are working in good order and are up to date. Often an issue may not be obvious until it has been seen by a professional mechanic.

It is more cost-effective to perform preventative maintenance than to wait until a part breaks completely and puts your truck out of commission until repairs are finished. Fire trucks play an important role in a city or town’s safety and should be prepared to help extinguish any potentially dangerous fires. That’s why it is frustrating to have a broken-down fire truck because it can put a strain on a fire department and hinder firefighters from being able to do their job.
