View Full Version : DNR's ORV Safety Training Subcommittee

July 1st, 2009, 03:06 PM
GLFWDA was invited to attend a meeting of the DNR's ORV Safety Training Subcommittee today. The GLFWDA Land Use Committee reiterated the need for 4x4 driving and SAFE extraction technique training to be included in both the Safety Training Manual and the more readily available ORV Handbook. The information was well received. Many possibilities were discussed from hands on training to online training and the merits and pitfalls of each were enumerated.

LED will be sending several of its more prominent ORV Training Officers to receive accredited training in each form of ORV. The GLFWDA LUC was asked to contact LED to schedule a 4WD Awareness Class so that the officers may also learn safe operation and extraction techniques for a full-sized 4x4 vehicle. The LUC will be in contact with the GLFWDA Awareness Coordinator.

Unfortunately, program desires are high and the budget is very low.
It will be interesting to see what compromise between the two will yield for the final program.

GLFWDA will keep you abreast of any further developments.

I would be more than willing to help out if this comes to fruition. I have a public speaking / teaching background, so it's right up my alley!
