PM me your email, I'll send you PDF copies of our driver training/veh. operation directives, sign-off checklists, etc.
Some highlites: we are taught EVOC in academy (16 hr. state mandated course); we also must pass certain prescribed off-road evolutions (cone course) such as parallel parking, diminishing-clearance, backing up, etc.; minimum 16 hours on road training w/ at least 4 of these hours at night; not to mention being proficient in operation of pump, aerial, or whatever the type of apparatus is to be qualifed upon; proficiency in "maintenance" - really just fluid checks; knowledge of fireground responsibilities (placement, establish water supply, drafting, relay pumping, ladder pipe, etc.). You must qualify to tiller before learning to drive a tiller piece. Oddly, we can't drive a squad until qualified to drive an engine or ladder.
The actual qualification is two-part: the operations part or "fireman" stuff includes a written test of pump operations (or aerial, ladder, etc.) along with hands-on demonstration of skills, etc.; the safety side is written test of driving laws/directives/OPs, an on-road test, and sometimes the off-road cone course.
Also, our directive on driver training does reference some NFPA standards:
NFPA 1001 - Standard for FF Professional Qualification
NFPA 1002 - Standard for Fire Apparatus Drive/Operator Professional Qualification
NFPA 1021 - Standard for Fire Officer Professional Qualification
NFPA 1451 - Stanfdard for Fire Servce Vehicle - Operations Training Program
NFPA 1500 - Stanfdard for Fire Dept. Occ. Safety/Health ProgramOpinions expressed are mine alone, and do not necessarily reflect those of the Philadelphia Fire Department and/or IAFF Local 22.
