EPFD Fleet Among the Best in the Nation, Only Fire Department Recognized

The National Association of Fleet Administrators Institute recognized the City of El Paso’s Fire Department Fleet Maintenance division as one of 2018’s 100 Best Fleets in the Americas.

“I applaud the Fire Department for receiving another well-deserved recognition,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez.  “The Department’s continued efforts to enhance operations and provide the best services possible is an example of a high-performing organization that is focused on the community it serves.”

The El Paso Fire Department is the only Fire Department in the nation included on the list of Best Fleets in the Americas. EPFD’s staffing, resources, focus on preventative maintenance, and around the clock service capabilities, distinguish the Department from other organizations.

Currently, the Department operates and maintains 162 vehicles. Each of the units receives three regular services a year, in addition to a full annual service, increasing the fleet’s reliability. Recently, two new pumper units entered the fleet, and three more apparatus will join the fleet this year.

Additionally, new procedures are being implemented that will help reduce fire truck downtime by receiving oil changes at their stations.

The 100 Best Fleets program recognizes and rewards peak performing fleet operations in North America. Currently, in its sixteenth year, 100 Best Fleets identifies and encourages ever-increasing levels of performance improvement within the fleet industry.
