Assistant Chief Dave Pratt and Captain Joe Hall of the Boothbay Fire Department attended a two-day “Train the Trainer” course in Augusta on Sept. 10 and 11, according the BFD Chief Dick Spofford.

Pratt and Hall are now certified to teach EVDT (emergency vehicle driver training) to departments in Lincoln County. The course included training on teaching EMSVO (emergency medical services vehicle operator) for ambulance drivers.

“This will help area departments to get their drivers cleared to drive emergency vehicles,” said Spofford.

Members of 25 fire departments from around the state attended the course.
