ESTABLISH AN AMBULANCE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
Ambulance maintenance can help improve the life of your ambulance by increasing reliability, durability, performance, and reducing downtime. Providing routine and preventative maintenance can help protect your ambulance from major repair expenses by eliminating issues or detecting issues early enough to prevent more extensive damage. As emergency response vehicles, ambulances must always be maintained to provide safe and reliable response. Some mechanical failures are inevitable, but preventative and regularly scheduled maintenance checks can eliminate these failures.
Ambulance operators should check certain aspects of their ambulance once monthly, once every three months, once every six months, and once every year. Smaller tasks, like checking tires and suspension systems, should be done every month. Bigger tasks like checking cooling system lines or waxing all interior surfaces can be done on a bi-annual or annual basis.
