The report on maintenance practices in the Boston Fire Department was released this week, and can be found around the fire web from firehouse.com to Dave Statter. It's a short report, only 19 pages. The assessment is an outside review of fleet management organization and staffing, vehicle inspection and defect reporting, preventive maintenance, management of vendor-perform services, and other fleet management practices. Plus recommendations. The study was commissioned after the death of Lt. Kevin M. Kelley, who was killed on January 9, when the brakes failed on his ladder truck and it crashed into a building. Read the report.
