Emergency Vehicle Driver Training

XTN041 - 16.00 Hours

Description

Operators of emergency vehicles carry a heavy responsibility. The penalty for not adequately training your operators also carries legal consequences; emergency vehicle operators and the entities they represent have been held both criminally and civilly responsible for their actions.

This Emergency Vehicle Driver Training (EVDT) course was developed to teach the emergency vehicle operator proper driving techniques, including the mental and physical aspects of driving. The program points out the long-term impact of an accident involving an emergency vehicle on the operator, the emergency service organization, and the community in which they serve.
