“Emergency vehicle operation is important, but arriving safely is a critical task. The operation of a patrol car or other emergency response vehicle must go hand in hand with proper decision making skills. The addition of a driving simulator to our well established emergency vehicle operator course has provided the opportunity to teach decision making skills at a level that cannot be replicated safely in the real world.”

This training tool is receiving nothing but 5 stars for its benefits.
