Four (4) members of the Mattawa Fire Department completed their 4 hour basic driver training course this past weekend. They are now eligible to proceed to the intermediate phase of their training.
This weekend focused on truck familiarity, vehicle dynamics and precision driving. Members had to navigate a tight slalom, a narrow straight away, sharp 90 degree corner, reverse into parking spot off roadway and a 3 point turn.
Training like this helps ensure our drivers are safe and proficient in all aspects of operating our apparatus.
