Tompkins Insurance Agency sponsored the Utica Mutual Emergency Vehicle Operation Course (EVOC) held last month at the Genesee County Fire Training Center in Batavia.

This course provided vehicle operators with a better understanding of the seriousness of emergency vehicle operation.

Students were made aware of the potential for tragedy and financial loss as well as the legal and moral responsibilities encountered when operating an emergency vehicle.
