I can send you what we use in Atlanta. You guys already have tillers or are you getting ready to purchase some?
Chief I hope I have attached what we use for our tiller training....Good luck with hopefully your new tiller!!!
When we tiller train we go to a large cemetery that is in are still. There is a lot of narrow roads that make backing up more of a challange. Also there is little traffic and not a lot of moving people (ha ha ).

we have 4 tillers but we are experiencing more than ourr share of accidents
a more tailorred program is needed
if you have anything, we would like to see it
thanks bro
Chief, I just read the stuff that Rick sent. An that looks like a great place to start. In Niles we have no JPR's that cover the driving of the tiller, are JPR's cover set-up and ladder operation. I know the cemetery thing sounds silly but it has worked for us for a lot of years. Good luck.
we have lots of cemetarys in north hudson
most are on steep hills but it is a cool idea
we just have to get permission
b safe
Hey brother great topic,
We have no training program lesson plans. I would love to see some posted. Right now we take the new guy in a large parking lot with a tillerman cliped into the truck. After a hour or so we take them on the roads slowly. I am sure there has to be a better way?
