The Fleet Management Department provides vehicles, equipment, and services to the officials and employees of the County so that they may, in turn, provide services that promote health, safety, well being, and quality of life to the residents of the County.
Fleet Management provides services for the majority of county vehicles and equipment. Services include the acquisition, maintenance, repair, modification, and disposal of vehicles and other related equipment. The San Bernardino County Fire, Sheriff, and Special Districts Departments are authorized to operate their respective fleets independent of Fleet Management.
Fleet Management operates its main garage in San Bernardino — including a light duty (cars and pickup trucks) shop, heavy duty (large trucks and other equipment) shop, welding/metal fabrication shop, emergency vehicle make-ready shop, parts room and a fueling station. The department also operates five smaller “service centers” in outlying locations and 21 strategically located fueling sites.
Additionally, the department operates a motor pool, which has ownership and/or maintenance responsibility for approximately 1,700 automobiles, vans, pick-up trucks, and various specialty vehicles assigned to county departments. The Motor Pool coordinates the collection and distribution of replacement, fuel, maintenance, repair, and other operational costs of fleet vehicles.
Improved customer satisfaction will ensure a stable/increasing customer base for the department that will support the lowest possible unit cost distribution to the county operational departments.
Vehicle availability is critical to all county departments in order for them to deliver services to their clients. It is therefore critical that Fleet Management complete all vehicle maintenance and repairs as quickly as possible but without sacrificing quality. Additionally, timely vehicle maintenance/repairs turnaround will improve overall customer satisfaction.
An element of the county’s mission is to improve the quality of life for its residents. Improving air quality is one component for improving the overall quality of life, and reducing vehicle emissions is a critical element in the effort to improve air quality. Furthermore, South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD – with significant jurisdiction in the county) Rule 1191 mandates that, beginning July 1, 2001, all public fleets with more than 15 vehicles must purchase low emission vehicles (LEV or better).
