FF228 - Emergency Vehicle Driving Simulation

Overview

Emergency response driver training simulators (ERDTS) create real-world experiences that enable drivers to hone their skills within a variety of challenging situations. Drivers can learn a wide range of tasks, from basic vehicle operations to more advanced scenario-based tactical training, for many different vehicle types. This training enables the student to experience real-world situations without the logistical, legal, and moral ramifications that would automatically be attached to a mistake made on the streets. Unlike traditional driver safety courses that emphasize skills, law, and knowledge, the simulator empowers drivers to review their attitudes and find new ways to break old habits.
