Organizational PMCS Procedures ..........................
a. The necessary preventive maintenance checks and services (PMCS) that are to be performed at the
organizational level are listed and described in Table 4-2. To insure that the 250 GPM Mini-Pumper is ready for
operation at all times, the vehicle must be systematically inspected so that defects can be discovered and
corrected before they result in equipment damage or failure.
b. The preventive maintenance checks and services (PMCS) in Table 4-2 are arranged in a logical sequence
requiring minimum time and motion on the part of the person(s) performing the check or service.
4-7. ORGANIZATIONAL PMCS PROCEDURES.
a. Purpose. Your preventive maintenance checks and services table lists the inspections and care of your
equipment required to keep it in good operating condition.
b. Interval Column. The interval column tells you when to perform a certain check or service.
c. Item To Be Inspected Column. The item to be inspected column lists the components or assemblies of the
vehicle to be inspected or serviced.
d. Procedure Column. The procedure column for your PMCS table tells you how to do the required checks and
services. Carefully follow these instructions.
e. Reporting Or Correcting Deficiencies. Defects discovered during operation of the vehicle should be noted for
future maintenance as soon as the operation has ceased. Stop operation immediately if a deficiency is noted
which would damage the equipment if operation is continued. Report any malfunctions or failures on the proper
DA Form 2404, or refer to DA PAM 738-750.
