The City of Columbus, Ohio teamed up with MEMA Ohio in an effort to bring regional training to local fire technicians. The training lasted for one week on-site and involved 22 technicians.

The Emergency Vehicle Technician (EVT) instructor, Al Conkle of Fire Tech Support, trained students on  F1- Maintenance, Inspection, and Testing of Fire Apparatus; F2-Design and Performance Standards of Fire Apparatus; and F3-Fire Pumps and Accessories, from the nationally recognized Emergency Vehicle Technician Program.

The training included both classroom and “hands-on” training at the Columbus facility. MEMA provided students with lunch daily. The training was open to all MEMA members and their employees at no cost. This collaborative effort demonstrates the importance and commitment of training to our technicians.

The Columbus Fleet Management Division remains a top Leading Fleet and is an ASE Blue Seal recognized facility in its eighth year. Columbus holds more than 100 EVT certifications with 10 Master EVT certifications currently on the floor.

The Ohio Chapter of the Municipal Equipment Maintenance Association (MEMA) was formed in 2013.
