To accomplish the Gallup Fire Departments commitment to safe
driving, the Fire Department participated in a 16 hour defensive driving course given by Mr. Mike Wilbur of Emergency Vehicle Response from New York on October 24
- 25. The course was attended by all the members of the Gallup Fire Department
to sharpen our vehicle operations and safe driving skills. The course consisted of classroom and a practical driving course in which the drivers had to navigate an obstacle course. Seasoned drivers
within the department attend this annual defensive driving course while new
employees undergo the same course along with extensive driver training before
being permitted to drive on the streets of Gallup.
