    Talking Driver Safety Policy

    I'm currenty a second year student in the Executive Fire Officer Program in Emmitsburg. To complete this year's assignment, I need to write a research paper. I would like to find information defining different fire departments policies and procedures to assure driver's safety. My main focus will be the safe operation of a department vehicle. I'm interested in all departments, no matter the size. Driver safety effects us all. The NFA has a five-year goal of reducing firefighter deaths by 25%. I beleive that if we can prevent driving accidents, we will come very close to meeting their goal. If you have an electronic copy of your policy or procedure, please email it to me at:

    I do appreciate any help I can receive with this research paper.

    I always wanted to be 1st at something! We have a weak written policy, that mostly follows stae law (not more than 10mph over posted speed). It is more CYA than a useful, thoughful policy.
