It's a department in most cities that is often overlooked, and although they aren't on the front lines of public service their work is a critical component to the public as they work hard to ensure that all vehicles large and even small are safe, reliable and ready to be put to the test to enable the countless number of city employees to do their job and do it well! This is Newport News Vehicle and Equipment Services and they indeed help the City of Newport News, Virginia GO ROUND- thanks to its dedicated staff of technicians and fleet services personnel that strive for excellence when it comes to fixing, maintaining the more than 1400 vehicles and equipment in the city's fleet so that they are ready to go to perform the jobs and services that citizens rely on each and everyday- from police cars, garbage trucks, fire trucks and even motorcycles! It's all here and this is a rare behind the scenes look at this well oiled machine . . . AND WITH OUT THEM the city would come to a SCREECHING HALT!!
