This course is the first phase (I) of the Virginia Beach Emergency Vehicle Operator's Course (EVOC).  

EVOC students will need to complete this online phase I course prior to completing Phase II (classroom) and then completing Phases III  (dynamic driving range cone course & community commentary drive), and Phase V (Driving skills assessment and community driving in the evening).

An essential part of operating as a cohesive team is the ability to utilize the communication tools at our disposal.  Radios, Computers, and other tools exist that allow us to function in an efficient and coordinated manor.  This course should allow the student become familiar with, and and effectively use the equipment and procedures adopted by Virginia Beach EMS

The New Word Scenario is placing increased demand for accurate temperature assessment for our patients.  We will be utilizing the SureTemp Plus 690 Electronic Thermometer. The SureTemp 690 Thermometer is fast—capturing approximately 4- to 6-second oral, or 10- to 13-second pediatric axillary and 12- to 15-second adult axillary temperatures. Featuring the technology that sets the standard for accuracy, you can have confidence the SureTemp 690 will deliver accurate, repeatable readings on patients of all age groups.

An overview of Virginia EMS regulations highlighting the importance of patient care reporting and an introduction to our new ePCR platform, Elite.  Students will learn about Virginia Beach EMS reporting requirements, hardware used to capture ePCR, and how to use Elite.  Then, each student can complete 3 types of reports to familiarize themselves with Elite with hands-on exercises.

This course is for Students and New members.  It is designed to provide an introduction and orientation to how our members will be scheduled for their duties with VBEMS using our scheduling system (Oscartrack).
