Event Details

EVOC: Bennington Rescue is now offering National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) EMS Vehicle Operator Safety (EVOS)

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
  • Emergency response
  • Crash prevention
  • Driving skills
  • Technological aids
  • Simulation training

EVOS is appropriate for EMS practitioners at all levels. EVOS is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.

Intended audience:

  • EMS professionals (volunteer or paid EMR, EMT, AEMT, Paramedic)
  • New volunteer or paid EMS trainees

The course includes classroom portion, hands-on driving skills, and textbook.
