EMS Vehicle Operator Safety
NAEMT's EMS Vehicle Operator Safety (EVOS) course addresses the knowledge gap that leads to injuries and deaths, and focuses on the specific behaviors that need to be changed to create a culture of safe driving.
Drawing on the most current research about the behaviors and other hazards that lead to crashes, EVOS features case studies and analyses of both common and catastrophic collisions. EVOS challenges EMS practitioners to reconsider their preconceptions about safe vehicle operations. Instructors can easily incorporate local laws, rules and policies into the curriculum.
Topics covered in the course include:
- Making driving safety a priority
Legal aspects of EMS vehicle operation
Maneuvering an EMS vehicle
Vehicle inspection and maintenance
Mental, emotional and physical preparedness
EVOS is appropriate for EMS practitioners at all levels. EVOS is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.
