Emergency Services UTV/ATV Safety - CP22201

Description

Hours: 8 | Prerequisites: None | Host requirements: None

Utility terrain vehicles (UTV) and all terrain vehicles (ATV) have gained wider acceptance and use in both fire service and EMS. These vehicles can help responders take quicker action with less physical exhaustion of department members. These vehicles not only help the EMS providers or firefighters that use them, but also benefit the people served by the emergency service organization. Adding UTVs and ATVs to an Emergency Services Operations (ESO) fleet can provide great benefits but might also present safety issues if the vehicles have not been properly trained in the operation and maintenance. This safety program was developed to provide refresher training for ESOs that use these types of specialty vehicles.
