FOMS Shift Operations

Services Provided

Responds 24/7 to urgent maintenance calls.

In an emergency, a Facilities Operations Maintenance Specialist (FOMS) checks out the situation and takes whatever steps are necessary to alleviate or resolve the immediate problem. As required, additional staff are called in to handle specific problems. Otherwise, the FOMS will write a work request to the appropriate shop to take care of the problem.

FOMS also maintain, test, repair, and inspect fire sprinkler and life-safety systems, and provide operational support for the other critical campus utility systems.
