BME Statement on Coronavirus
To our valued clients,
As the landscape regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, we are closely monitoring the situation and are adhering to the governments, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization’s guidelines on all aspects of safe working, quarantine and traveling. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and the first responders we serve. We will continue manufacturing fire apparatus as long as it is safe to do so and supplies are available. We have prepared for a number of contingencies to minimize the risk and disruption to our business operations, employees, and customers.
In an effort to protect Boise Mobile Equipment employees, visiting personnel and client receiving engines we have implemented the following:
- No tours of the facilities at this time
- Limiting number of personnel visiting for meetings at our facility
- Shortening time spent on the shop floor of visiting departments
- Delivering engines with a pilot vehicle to eliminate flying
- Preventative measures for at risk employees
We will assess the situation daily and update our manufacturing plans accordingly during this time. Please be assured that we will continue to work diligently to ensure the processes, infrastructure and safeguards we have in place, to continue delivering a quality fire apparatus and customer service.
From the team at Boise Mobile Equipment
