Routine maintenance is general vehicle maintenance that occurs regularly between scheduled preventive service intervals. The “TWO” program promotes collaboration between you, the customer, and Fleet Management, to facilitate routine maintenance. view video
The elements of the programs are:
- It takes TWO to properly care for and maintain a vehicle – Fleet Management and the vehicle operator.
- It takes two minutes for the operator to check these parameters. Any noted deficiencies should be immediately reported to the nearest Fleet garage for resolution.
- The driver/operator should also be aware of dashboard warning lights, changes in the feel or operation of the brakes, and the operability of lights, turn signals and windshield wipers.
- Heavy Equipment:
Heavy equipment routine maintenance requires participation from the operator, as follows:
- 10 Hour Service - This service is the responsibility of the equipment operator and should be performed after every ten hours of equipment operation, or daily. This service requires an overall inspection of the equipment mechanical systems, and lubrication of moving parts. Further instruction in performing 10-hour services on heavy equipment can be obtained by contacting any of the Fleet Management garages.
Preventive Maintenance Service:
Preventive maintenance is scheduled service for the purpose of maintaining vehicles/equipment in satisfactory operating condition by providing for systematic inspection, detection, and correction of developing failures either before they occur, or before they develop into major defects. Preventive maintenance service is performed on County automobiles, trucks and equipment in accordance with manufacturer recommendations. Preventive maintenance service is performed based on the amount of accrued usage. With the exception of heavy equipment, the maintenance interval is:
- Semi-annually OR Annually
Preventive maintenance will be scheduled in one of two ways:
- Fleet Management will schedule
- Customer will schedule
- The computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) provides the Fleet team with a monthly notification of vehicles/equipment due for service for that period.
- The Fleet team will contact the respective departments to schedule service, based on the notification. It is imperative that departments/operators respond timely to service notifications.
- Alternatively, the operator can schedule preventive maintenance, referring to the “Next Service Due” sticker on the vehicle windshield for preventive maintenance scheduling guidance.
- To schedule service, contact one of the shops in your work area. In most cases, when service is scheduled, you will be given an estimated time of completion. You can also arrange for the use of a pool vehicle, while your vehicle is serviced.
Corrective repair is repair performed to inspect, diagnose, and rectify a particular fault. Corrective repair service is performed on County automobiles, trucks and equipment in accordance with manufacturer recommendations. Vehicles/equipment experiencing operational deficiencies should be promptly brought to one of the Fleet garages for resolution. Prompt response to operational deficiencies may reduce the cost of the repair/damage and allow for application of applicable warranty provisions.

To schedule service, contact the division at the main shop which is responsible for the type of vehicle or equipment you are assigned, or contact one of the satellite shops in your work area. In most cases, when you make an appointment, you will be given an estimated time of completion. You can also arrange for the use of a pool vehicle at this time.
