Guam - Several Guam Police officers, firefighters, Customs agents and law enforcement from Saipan participated in the train the Trainers Emergency Vehicle Operations Course this week. The training was funded by a $9,000 grant and through the assistance of the Guam Community College.

New York firefighter Lt. Michael Wilber conducted the exercise to ensure both law enforcement and the public are safe on the island's roadways. He said, "Over the last several years whether you're a police officer or a fire fighter more line of duty deaths for each group are attributed to cars, driving cars, being around cars and trucks then the actual job of being a police officer or fire fighter. In other words, our officers are getting killed not with bullets but with accidents with their own cars."

The training also certifies law enforcement personnel to train their staff.
