Reducing Fossil Fuel

Reviewing the type and size of all vehicle and equipment to have the most efficient vehicles that meet our needs. 
  • We perform a projected fuel consumption analysis where we compare the existing unit against the proposed replacement vehicle to maximize efficiency.
  • We have a vehicle idling policy in place. 

Cemetery Burial / Grave Liners

Fleet Maintenance builds heavy metal liners for cemeteries to avoid ground caving at burials. The liner is placed in the ground before burial to facilitate the lowering of the casket into the ground. 
The purpose of a burial or grave liner is to prevent the ground from caving in. The grave liner is made of four heavy metal sides that satisfy cemetery requirements to warranty protective strength.
