WE are a Volunteer Fire department. I am looking at recerting ALL drivers of our equipment and want to know what you all think about it and how many hours should I make it. I was thinking about 1 hr drivers training for all and have heard that most is 12 hrs per year. Thoughts?
We have to go throught the EVOC Class every year, thats classroom and driving. Its about 4-6 hours I believe.
We do a yearly practical driving test, diminishing clearance, alley dock, serpentine and vehicle turnround. Classroom training is DDC one year and EVOC the next.
We do yearly evoc, plus test on how to operate pump , ladder and a test on were equipment is located on the trucks. its mostly for the drivers that show up every once and awhile.
