Under Education and Training, click HazMat training, and then click “Learning Management System” under online training programs. Click to access the learning management. Click HazMat/WMD.

DART

DART training will be conducted on Aug. 15-17 at the station located at 1715 W. Frankford. Please review SOG 305 DART Emergency Procedures prior to the class. Below is the schedule:

  • Group 1 - 09:00
  • Group 2 - 10:30
  • Group 3 - 12:00
  • Group 4 - 13:30

I received this instruction from DART: “When your guys get to the location, have them go to the light at Trade Center and make that turn. We have a bus only driveway where your guys can park their vehicles, instead of having to maneuver through the parking lot.”
