SMART™ Driving - Blacks Creek IA Video

Driving is one of the most hazardous endeavors wildland firefighters engage in during the course of their jobs. Vehicle-related accidents are often one of the leading causes of firefighter deaths annually. In addition to deaths, these accidents result in significant expenses including property and equipment damage, medical treatment costs, and loss of time and productivity of injured employees. While not all accidents can be avoided, knowledge of how to safely operate and work around vehicles can significantly reduce the exposure to accidents and near misses.

The intent of this video is to provide BLM drivers with a fresh look at driving their government and personal vehicles. Joe Darden, a professional driving trainer and video narrator, briefs viewers on his SMART Driving System™. The information provided can be used to enhance defensive driving skills and can be incorporated into safety tailgate sessions or driver refresher training. By no means is the video program mandatory or a policy-driven training program.
