ANNOUNCEMENTS

As you know, the CFEMA has been working on a standard vehicle inspection form. We felt that due to some unfortunate incidents throughout the country with apparatus, that a standard, simple form, to be used by the drivers, similer to one used by truck drivers in the private sector, can be used to catch possible problems with apparatus before a serious problem occurs. This form can be used by all Departments for the drivers pre-trip inspection as required by the DOT.  We will be  willing to work with departments to help adapt this form for their use.

THE FORM AND ASSOCIATED INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE IN THE "DOWNLOADS" AREA FOUND ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THIS WEBPAGE.

SUPPORT YOUR ASSOCIATION...GET INVOLVED...BE ACTIVE...
