“DRIVE TO SURVIVE”

The Sequel - PART 2

DOWNINGTOWN FIRE DEPARTMENT

Class to be held at Downingtown West High School

445 Manor Avenue, Downingtown PA, 19335

ON

SEPTEMBER 9, 2015 at 1900 hours

CLASS INCLUDES CASE STUDIES AND DRUNK DRIVING

Designed as a stand-alone program for new students or a “sequel” for members that have previously attended a “Drive to Survivetraining seminar, this class is designed to advance and expand upon the lessons learned in the original “Drive to Survive” program.  The“Drive to Survive” training program is designed to teach members that no matter how long they have been driving, or how “good” they think they are, there are limits to the safe operation of an emergency apparatus or personal vehicle.  Using the same techniques used by crash investigators, this class is designed to provide a better understanding of important topics that are essential for safe driving.  The “Drive to Survive” program is designed to refresh and expand upon topics such as:

 

ü  Vehicle Dynamics

ü  Air Brakes

ü  Brake Fade

ü  Roadway Friction

ü  Stopping Distances

ü  Skid Control

ü  Critical Curve Speed

  

 

ü  Rollover Thresholds

ü  Anti-Lock Brakes

ü  Hydroplaning

ü  Tire Blowouts

ü  Drunk Driving

ü  Personal Vehicle Ops

ü  Seat Belt Use

The “Drive to Survive” training program is a 3-hour, lecture based seminar, which has been featured at over 300 different locations throughout the United States.

“Drive to Survive” has been approved for EMS continuing education credits by the PA Department of Health and certificates of attendance will be issued.

Class cost is $30.00 per person.  Each company will be billed after the class based on the number of members who attend.
