    Question EVAP (?) and Emergency Vehicle Driver Training (NOT D/O)

    Hey all, was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a good training program for Emergency Vehicle Accident Prevention, or any other programs for FF/EMT's to start getting behind the wheel of light rescue and ambulances, so that they have a baseline knowledge of how not to drive, i.e., intro to driving code etc. Any constructive input very VERY welcome! Thanks~

    Default VFIS Emergency Driver Training

    VFIS insurance has a nice driver training program. If you are insured by them all materials should be available to you. The program has a classroom portion (powerpoints) that you can modify to suit your needs and then a practical skills portion (cone course). Contact them and they should be able to provide you with materials. The program is somewhat turn key, but like any other type of training program it is best if you modify it to suit your department. The program will give you a good base to start and adapt from.

    We started with VFIS and over the years it has been modified and updated. We recently had a driving class that was on a skid pad. They taught a short class, then put us in old cop cars to run the the course, and then a old fire truck. Very interesting class. It opened the eyes of a lot of our young drivers. It was a very good class. I would go to it again.

    We recently went through CEVO3 (basically accident prevention for emergency vehicles) and none of the participants thought it was very good. It was really written at a level appropriate for someone on a driver's permit (15-16 year old). I'm not sure what, if any, insurance benefits the dept will receive, but it was deathly boring. All video and workbook.
