Development of Emergency Response Driving Standards

24th March 2021 Presented in association with:

Speaker: Kevin Day, Driver Training Manager, West Midlands Fire Service
NFCC Lead – Driver Training Advisory Group

Kevin will cover a number of key recent developments for those involved in managing emergency response drivers including:

  • An update on the work related to Section 19, Road Safety Act 2006 involving exemption from speed limits for emergency response drivers.
  • The development of a Fire Service Emergency Response Driving Standard.
  • Emergency response driver and instructor development.

Kevin has worked in public service for fifty years, starting in Warwickshire Police, before a career in the fire service. His involvement in the development of a national framework for emergency response driving began in 2005. He was Secretary to the NFCC Driver Training Advisory Group for several years, and now advises the Strategic Lead. Kevin is a member of the Police Foundation’s ‘Reflective Practitioners Group’ for ‘Roadcraft’, the Police Drivers Handbook, which is used by all emergency services for driver training. He has worked with other fire services and agencies to promote the need for collaboration and change in relation to the attitude towards driving in the fire service. Kevin and his team assisted ‘Driver Metrics’ to establish their EFADRI, an emergency response driver risk index for the fire service. He was the emergency service portfolio holder for AIRSO, and now has that role for ARRM.
