DriveWise Fire Services Driver Training Program
The DriveWise Fire Services driver training program is designed exclusively for firefighters and fire chiefs.
Real Situations, Simulated Environments
DriveWise has worked with fire chiefs and firefighters to develop scenarios based on real-life events that educate the learner on how hazardous situations can be prevented and avoided. Participants can practice safe and effective driving techniques in varying adverse conditions and driving settings. The simulator offers a dynamic 3D environment that can replicate day, dusk, dawn and night time.
Emergency Response Driving
Enhance driving skills in evasive manoeuvring, decision making, intersection clearance and situational perception. The simulator offers lights and sirens, as well as radio and dispatch response for practical reinforcement.
Training can take place at one of our many locations, or yours. DriveWise has a fully-equipped mobile training unit that houses a simulator and classroom for training at any location. This allows firefighters and chiefs to receive training while on duty; if they receive a call they can resume training when they return.
Students receive a blend of in-class instruction that involves video presentations, lectures, group discussions and the interactive Classroom Performance System (CPS). The CPS records test results and monitors student progress throughout the course. The information can easily be exported and used to evaluate participant success.
Whether you need to improve fuel economy, reduce vehicle collisions or improve driver efficiency, DriveWise has a program for you. Using our experienced and knowledgeable instructional design team, we can conceptualize, build and deploy an effective, high-quality training program that complements your existing in-house courseware and can include your own risk-mitigation data..
