Our Preventive Maintenance Program (PMP) insures that your apparatus will be ready for the call when necessary. It also insures successful certifications as required. Performing preventative maintenance on a regularly scheduled basis will ensure low cost apparatus repair for the year and reduces down time of the apparatus. Preventive maintenance programs also insure your vehicle service records are properly maintained. Once set up, Priority Fire will notify you of up-coming service and certifications. We are your one stop service center.

Chassis PMP Service includes all the motor oil and all exterior filters (except air filter). The Air filter is extra if it needs replacing. This isn’t just a Lube, Oil and Filter; it’s a complete Service and Safety Check. (We use Rotella T 15W40 Motor Oil unless otherwise advised) Let us show you our “PMP Chassis/Body Service Check List”, so you can see all that we check and/or adjust.

Pump PMP Service includes changing the Gear Grease/Oil in the Gearbox, along with a complete inspection, adjustments as needed, and a Pump Performance Test. Let us show you our “PMP Pump Check Service & Performance Sheets” also.

Special Note: As part of our PMP program; if your department is within 40 miles of Priority Fire, you are eligible for “Free pick-up and Delivery”. One of our insured CDL driver’s can pick-up and return your unit. It's been proven that service work and repairs can be turned around faster, and have your apparatus back in service sooner, if done in the shop. Our Mobile Unit is available if you are more comfortable having the work done at your station. We offer “Fast and Prompt Service”.
