CEVO® 3: Fire™

First introduced in the early 90's, the Coaching the Emergency Vehicle Operator™ (CEVO) courses for ambulance, fire and police personnel quickly became accepted as standards in driver training for these fields. Since then, over 500,000 emergency professionals have been trained with the CEVO™ programs.

Now, based on valuable input from participants, instructors and loss prevention professionals, a revised and updated CEVO 3™: Fire course is available.

As with the original program, operators will appreciate CEVO 3's non-lecture, participant-intensive educational approach, and instructors will appreciate the program's flexible and easy-to-use format. The 6 hour course is divided into five sessions, which can be presented in one day or spread out over multiple days.

What's new:

  • New and updated Response Book situation analysis
  • "Coaching Reminder Points" completion statements in the Response Book
  • All new discussion scenarios based on common collision situations
  • All new video including apparatus inspections, a balance of small town and rural locations with large urban locations and in-cab video of actual collisions.
