The QFD is very fortunate that we have members from all walks of life, with all different types of careers. Luckily, several of these members are well versed in vehicle mechanics. Today, a group of members replaced all of the brakes on Truck 57. This is preventive maintenance that has to be done on a regular basis to keep our rigs in top running order. Having members perform some of these tasks in-house saves the Company a good sum of money.
Thanks to these members that go above and beyond to make sure the apparatus is in top shape. The best thing is, there were some guys who “stopped by the firehouse for just a minute”, but stayed and helped to get the job done in good time (less than 4 hours).
