March 15, 2020

Today, members completed the final hands-on instruction day of NFPA 1006 Vehicle & Machinery Awareness/Operations. The day began with skills review including lifting operations, haul systems, and patient care and packaging. Later on, the 3 teams worked together on an unusual scenario involving 3 vehicles and several patients.

The students will continue studying for a written exam, and practical skills certification evaluation on April 4th.

Thank you to Instructors Baker, Rohrer, Gilliland, and Witten!

We also want to give a special thank you to Den's Service Center for providing us with the vehicles to use for the training. Without them, we would not be able to get this valuable experience!
