MVFPD strives to keep all apparatus well maintained and safe. MVFPD employs four Emergency Vehicle Technicians (EVT). These personnel are located in the maintenance shop located in Erie. Each of these technicians has many years of experience and numerous certifications in emergency vehicle service and repair. Providing maintenance and repair services in-house provides cost savings and allows MVFPD to have greater control over the quality of services. The maintenance division also repairs apparatus from other Districts.
Mountain View Fire Protection District facility maintenance department moved into the 23,100 square foot maintenance facility that was constructed at 5322 County Road 7 in Erie, CO. The building provides much-needed space for MVFPD’s staff to perform maintenance on their larger fire engines and ladder trucks indoors, out of Colorado’s unpredictable elements. The building has an astounding 34’ ceiling height to allow for raising ladders and working under trucks. The building has space for central receiving, fire and EMS storage, a pump testing pit as well as 5 drive-through truck bays.
