As a Public Service the author was requested by the City of San Antonio to prepare and conduct a one week driver training course for EMS trainees. To data the course has been given to four classes and a total of 175 drivers. Up to August 1976 the San Antonio EMS drivers had accumulated over one million miles answering emergency calls without a body injury. The course consisted of eight hours of classroom theory followed by four days of on-the-course instruction in handling the Modulances in high speed cornering and emergency avoidance maneuvers. The trained drivers were smooth, confident, expert drivers who understood vehicle handling and what makes a driver lose control. As a result of this driver training experience the author has written a book, "High Speed and Emergency Driving Techniques" published in April 1976. /HSRI/
