The two main killers of firefighters are deaths resulting from heart attacks and vehicle driving accidents. Our course addresses both with special emphasis on the second, vehicle driving accidents. The two proven ways to lower this factor are through driver selection and driver training. The VATA Group’s comprehensive driver training curriculum targets NFPA, EVAP and Commercial Drivers License standards.
