A course designed to enhance safe vehicle operation by stressing theory and principles of defensive driving in both emergency and non-emergency situations. Virginia Motor Vehicle laws pertinent to the operation of emergency vehicles are included in the course. This class is not designed to teach the student to drive, but rather to explain how emergency driving differs from non-emergency driving. Although some driving experience will be gained through the practical exercises it is strongly recommended that the student have adequate driving experience in the vehicle. Pre-requisites: Valid drivers license (must have had for 2 years for level II / 3 years for level III) Recent DMV transcript (within 6 months of start date of class) Students not affiliated with Albemarle County Fire Rescue will be required to bring their own apparatus.
