    Default Evoc

    My department is writing a grant for a new brush rig. Question is while viewing the on-line orientation for vehicle acquisitions it stated you needed to factor in driver's training into the overall cost or your proposal will be denied.

    So the question is does a standard EVOC course cover this requirement or do you have to peform some other specialty brush specific due to its off-road nature?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    One of the best examples I have found is at
    www.minnesotafireservice.com/grantsmainmenu.html

    Comprehensive Driver Program-Information on how to comply.

    Check with your state's Fire Academy they should be able to help you with a class.

    Points that are made in the PG in regards to a comprehensive driver training program.


    Finally, due to the inherent safety benefits to be realized in departments using a comprehensive driver training program meeting NFPA standard 1002 or its equivalent, we will provide a competitive advantage to requests where the applicant has a comprehensive driver training program. Applicants seeking driver training with their vehicle request will receive a slightly lower competitive advantage than departments with such a program already in place. Applicants without a comprehensive driver training program, and who will not implement appropriate driver training in conjunction with their AFG award, or through other resources, will NOT be considered for a vehicle award.

    We institued an EVOC program as part of the 2006 application. Something we should have been doing anyway, the just gave us a reason to do it.

    Question,
    Would the VFIS insurance program on driver training be considered as adequate?

    If it's equivalent to NFPA 1002, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Shoot me an e-mail...I'm thinking you're only about 30 minutes away...I'll fill you in on how we addressed it in our successful tanker narrative last year.
