Description

TENTATIVE DATE **SUBJECT TO CHANGE**

The Volunteer Firemans Association of the City of New York is hosting an Emergency Vehicle Driver Training (EVDT) Course. The classroom portion of this class will start at the Gerrittsen Beach FD. The driving session will take place at the Driver Training Course at Floyd Bennet Field, a quick drive from Gerrittsen Beach. There is a fee of $10 a person.

This is a BYOA, bring your own apparatus event, if you cannot bring an apparatus please coordinate with someone who is going or the organizer and you may be able to use another department's apparatus.

The event is scheduled until 1500 HRS however, you may leave from Floyd Bennett Field when you have completed the course.

The operator of emergency vehicles in today’s society carries a heavy responsibility. The penalty for not adequately training your operators also carries legal consequences. Emergency vehicle operators and the entities they represent have been held both criminally and civilly responsible for their actions. This program was developed to teach the emergency vehicle operator proper driving technique, the mental as well as the physical aspects of the driving task. The program points out the long-term impact of an accident involving an emergency vehicle on the operator, the emergency service organization and the community in which they serve.

BREAKFAST and LUNCH will be provided

MUST BE A NYS FIRE OR EMS AGENCY
