We currently do rig checks on a weekly basis.  Our checks consist of inventory, starting power equipment, checking fuel levels, and radios.  We do this at our day training session with the respective vehicle lieutentants and station captain reveiwing the check off sheets.

Hope this helps and Stay Safe Brother!!
