FDM’s Preventative Maintenance Module (PM) is an all-inclusive tool with
wide-ranging capabilities to assist agencies with scheduling and tracking
the completion of agency maintenance events.
Schedule maintenance to occur at predefined intervals based on days, mileage, or hours used (e.g. SCBA gear).
Track maintenance history or request services for assets.
Assign staff to complete maintenance tasks.
Record asset usage.
Log failed maintenance tasks and automatically schedule additional repairs.
View work assignments by employee, shift or station.
The Preventative Maintenance Module walks users through the process of planning inspection and maintenance schedules, creating user defined maintenance schedules for daily, weekly or monthly maintenance, assigning service requests and maintaining historical data for every maintainable asset in the agency.
As each maintenance job is completed, the Manager or Supervisor can record costs incurred, materials used and labor expended.
With its link to the FDM Asset Management Module, as well as full integration with FDM’s Stations, Apparatus and Hydrants tables, the Preventative Maintenance Module provides full information flow and single-point entry of all asset related information.
The PM Module is also linked to FDM CAD or your third party CAD for identification of required resources at emergency scenes.
In October 2011, Thunder Bay Fire Rescue (TBFR) presented the departments first ever Strategic Master Fire Plan to City Council, approved as TBFR's guiding document for for the next 5 years.
Using the FDM GIS Analyst software, the Fire Station Location Analysis resulted in the strategic recommendation to relocate one of eight existing fire stations in order to achieve improved response coverage to the citizens of Thunder Bay.
The FDM GIS Analyst produced results that were accurate and definitive, allowing TBFR to confidently present a plan that clearly identified achievable apparatus response coverage and also to make recommendations for improvement to specific areas of The City of Thunder Bay.
