In other to get effective and efficient defensive drivers to man the newly acquired ambulance and the old one of VALCO, Management of the Volta Aluminium Company (VALCO) contacted the National Ambulance Service (NAS) to organize a 3-day defensive driver training programme for their staff. There were 17 participants from the Company’s Hospital and other Departments of the VALCO who took part in the training programme. They were taken through the rudiment of driving in the classroom as well as the field and assessed on the following parameters.

  1. Forward free driving
