FDIC 2014 Preview-Drive to Survive

Drive to Survive
Firefighter/EMT Christopher Daly, Goshen (PA) Fire Department
No matter how long you have been driving or how “good” you think you are, there are limits to the safe operation of an emergency apparatus. Using the same techniques used by crash investigators, this class addresses advanced topics not normally covered in basic driver-training programs, especially those that relate directly to vehicle dynamics, crash causation, and common driver errors. Roadway friction coefficients, rollover thresholds, critical curve speeds, and the proper handling of a tire blowout are just some of the topics covered. The class is ideal for any member who operates a fire truck, an ambulance, or a personal vehicle. It also addresses important issues for the chief and line officers, who are ultimately responsible for the operation of any motor vehicle or driver-training program within a department.
Thursday April 10, 1:30-3:15, Room 123-124
