This past weekend a couple of our firefighters went through Montgomery County Fire Academy’s Emergency Vehicle Operations Course. This course is designed to teach firefighters how to safely drive fire apparatus, whether they are driving to a fire call, or driving in a parade. Both require the driver to always be aware of his or her surroundings.
While sitting through a classroom setting the first day, the second day all takes place on a driving course. Drivers must show their skills by driving through serpentine patterns, driving backwards, and driving through a large course.
Congratulations to firefighters Bryan Supplee and Anthony DiJenno on your completion of the course!
