- Seat-belts Top Our Response Priority: This 30-minute session educates participants on the importance of using a seat-belt.

The training is provided using an online platform from McNeil and Company’s Emergency Services Insurance Program (ESIP). Course materials and certificates of completion are provided.
- STOP at Intersections: The largest percentage of major accidents involving emergency vehicles happens at intersections. Even with the use of warning devices, intersections pose a serious threat to the safety of both emergency service personnel as well as the public. This half-hour program explores why intersection safety TOPS our priorities.
