I want to start by thanking everyone that has been helping with the boat maintenance. The goal is to get everyone, that is willing, familiar with the boat so that the department as a whole can help operate the boat to have better coverage. Also, the boat needs to be exercised on a regular basis to extend it's longevity.
We are going to start using Active911 for regular boat maintenance and training notifications. There will be a pagegroup called "Boat" under settings. If you would like to be notified every time we do boat maintenance or training follow the following directions:
Make sure your Active911 App is up to date
Go into "Settings" in Active911
Click into "Pagegroups"
Click to check "Boat"
If you want to later remove yourself, do the same and remove the check.
Each week the boat needs to be at least inspected and motors ran for a few minutes, one person can do this. (An inspection list is being made and will be on the boat.) At this time, the regularly set maintenance time is every Thursday at 08:30. An alert will be sent out to the "Boat" pagegroup the day before. Please respond by using the "Avail" or "Unvl". If no one is available or if someone wants to see about doing it at a different time so that they can get some time on it, we will use the "Chat" feature on Active911 to talk to each other on the "Boat" Chat Group and discuss a new date/time to meet up.
Like anything else, the most difficult part of a project or assignment is good communication. Nothing can work 100% of the time, but we can try this and see how it goes. As always, I am open to any suggestions and feel free to give me a call or text with any questions.
