Safe Vehicle Operation
I am a Captain in a Large County Fire Department. I am currently on a work group trying to reduce collisions in our department. I am looking for information specific to "Reduced Speed" Response to emergencies. I am also looking for examples of Policies and Procedures from other departments. If you can provide me direction either through links to department sites or comments, it would be appreciated.

Check out this site from the Washington State Emerency Accident Prevention Program. Washington State has an excellent emergency Prevention Program with some fairly stiff requirements. But it sure seems to work!!. I am always finding it interesting when I read about MVAs with Emergency Apparatus. After reading what happen it always seems to be a preventable issue. Maybe this will help.
Look into the EVAP part

Good luck with your efforts!
Just in case you were not aware....
NFPA has developed two standards to help fire departments establish safe-driving programs: NFPA 1002, Standard on Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications and NFPA 1451, Standard for a Fire Service Vehicle Operations Training Program.
