A Well-Maintained Vehicle is a Safe Vehicle

The council strives to improve the skills of professional maintenance personnel and has established a close relationship with regulatory agencies. The FMC consists of fleet maintenance supervisors, representatives of manufacturers of transportation equipment and components as well as various law enforcement officials. The council meets once per year at the annual fall seminar and cosponsors a number of activities throughout the year.
