What is the Maintenance Crisis Song? Joel Leonard, also known as the Maintenance Evangelist, wrote the original version in October of 2002 after attending an Engineering Conference in Nashville, Tenn. After hearing hundreds of Facilities Engineering executives from major corporations complain the lack of interest by future generations to enter this career and witnessing first hand thousands of candidates brave 30 degree weather conditions to stand in line to earn a slot on American Idol, Leonard wrote the lyrics for “The Maintenance Crisis Song.”

Leonard said, “With the pending retirements of the baby boomer generation, the lack of interest by future generations, the aging of the current equipment which requires more maintenance, and the increasing sophistication of new technology, there is truly a perfect maintenance storm brewing. This problem is going to affect us all, so everyone needs to be aware or we will endure more preventable disasters like the busted levees of New Orleans. ”
