UNK-Emergency vehicle operators from Nebraska recently completed an Emergency Vehicle Operator Training (EVOT) course through the Nebraska Safety Center at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Training sessions included rural driving, night driving, driving in adverse conditions, multi-lane driving, and a review of the Nebraska laws. Instructors provided range and on-street assessment of the driving abilities of the participants.

Participants successfully completing the EVOT training are listed below by city:
