NHTSA Planning Survey on Ambulance Driver Training

The DOT agency's Federal Register notice says it wants to find out what types of training are required and when, as well as how driving incidents impact driving privileges.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration plans to survey EMS agencies in order to characterize ambulance driver training across the United States. The DOT agency has published the Federal Register notice required for such an information collection, and says in the notice that it wants to find out what types of training are required and when, how driving incidents impact driving privileges, initial qualification standards, and more.

Data will be collected through interviews and via an online survey of EMS agencies that provide ambulance services. There are up to 21,283 EMS agencies nationwide, according to the notice. The total sample size has the potential to be 21,436 participants, it states.

"Although emergency vehicle training for ambulance drivers has been repeatedly identified as an important step in the safety system, the current situation with respect to ambulance driver training in the United States is not well characterized," the notice states. It says the resulting data will help NHTSA determine whether additional research and development on the topic are warranted.
