Metro Fire employs personnel at the Spartan factory in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Their purpose is to ensure that our customer's units are being built to meet our customer's specifications and quality standards.
Our factory employee has the responsibilities at our body plant in Sioux Falls, and our aerial plant in Snyder, Nebraska. Their responsibilities include quality control inspections, apparatus performances, and final inspections with customers. One of the most important roles they have is validating the apparatus to ensure any deficiencies found at the final are addressed and repairs are made to meet the customer's expectations before the unit is shipped.
This upfront process ensures that when the apparatus is delivered to our Make Ready Department, we can focus on getting the equipment, radios, headsets, and other department equipment installed. By doing the Make Ready process locally, the customer has input on the location of equipment, such as radios, handheld radios, flashlights, headsets, EMS equipment, etc. The customer also works closely with our Fabrication Department to create custom compartments and mounts for their specific equipment.
