Fleet Maintenance

What We Do

The objective of Fleet Maintenance is to optimize equipment utilization, lower costs, and improve service by using modern maintenance practices and technologies. Fleet Maintenance is responsible for all of the vehicles used by the Elmira Police Department, Elmira Fire Department, and Department of Public Works. This includes the maintenance of several police cruisers, diesel engine fire trucks, the KME aerial platform, garbage trucks, mowers, snow plows, street washers, supervisor pickups, and many other vehicles and equipment used by the City of Elmira.

Through the use of best practices such as hiring qualified mechanics, continuous training and certification, preventive maintenance, computerized fuel management, management of parts inventories, and scheduled replacement based on equipment life cycles, DPW Fleet Maintenance is able to cut costs and continue to provide superior service to the city departments that provide necessary city services.
