Hernando County, FL and Reno, NV spoke on the actual improvements their agencies saw by implementing a “PM” program. Some of the benefits these agencies saw include: less time spent on response tasks, reduce response time, and perform work more efficiently and effectively 

How do we locate our maintenance yard(s)? – LAC’s Harry Lorick partnered with San Diego to present how the number and location of multiple yards was selected. An overview of the process was given and the new technology, such as GIS, that can make this process easier was reviewed.
