      While I do not know exactly how our management handles the paperwork, we do run first response for med as well as other public safety functions. Our officers are all required to have first aid, CPR, and AED certs, and our vehicles carry the gear, including AEDs.
      What kind of code-3 driving training do you have? Public or "private", if you get into a crash while operating code 3, that's what a plaintiff's lawyer is going to ask, not about the other certs.

        Yeah, in WI, if I put AEDs in the vehicles, I would of had to register every guard as a "professional first responder," and get a rescue squad permit (red lights on public roadways, ability to run code.) Oh, and no EVOC requirement in WI for private rescue squads.

          I am curious now as well as to whether or not the vehicle was registered as a emergency vehicle, because in order for a vehicle to be qaulified as a QRS, it needs to be operated by First Responders or higher, not first aiders and it needs a very specific set and quantity of equipment. A generic aid bag, O2 kit and AED from galls is not going to cut it. In addition there needs to be a way to communicate directly between the QRS team and the ambulance that is responding, that means if you're using cell phones. That you have their phone numbers and they have yours, there can be no using the 9-1-1 system as a go between, which is why most state certified QRS units are owned and operated by public safety agenices and they operate on the local Fire and EMS radio bands.

          There is no EVOC (or at least there was none) requirement for QRS drivers, the reason I believe this to be is that PA Motor Vehicle Law allows for "volunteer" fireifghters, EMT's etc to operate their departments apparatus with a regular DL and a letter from the chief saying that he/she certifies the operator has a safe driving and has met all of the departments training requirements to be able to safely drive the apparatus.

          This is starting to look like, yet another reason why I wish not just armed security was regulated in that great commonwealth.

Do not think that since I am no longer in the military, I will not pick up a weapon to defend my family, my home or my country. - Me!

            Not to be funny, but have you been through a EVOC (Emergency Vehicle Operator Course) or CEVO (Certified Emergency vehicle Operator) Training Course lately?

            I recetently completed a 39hr (thats what my certificate says anyway) EVOC course in the State of Maryland through the University of Maryland Fire Rescue Institute and it amounted to reading a book, hearing an old guy tell a few stories and 1 hour of driving around in a small parking lot around a few cones.

            And while I understand what you are saying regarding the attornies biting at the ankles of corporations or organizations when one of their "emergency vehicles" crashes into their client and the operator was not "properly trained or certified" ... I just wonder why more corporations or organizations dont just certify their people. From what I understand the CEVO course is even less in depth than the EVOC course.
