Snow Plow Training Is Underway

by

ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - More than 110 snowplow operators are currently participating in an intensive training program to prepare them for the worst road conditions a typical Minnesota winter has to offer. The training session runs through Sept. 30 at the Camp Ripley training facility near Little Falls, Minn.
 
The Minnesota Department of Transportation’s snowplow operator training program, known as SPOT, is a two-week session that highlights a variety of safety measures, plowing techniques and best practices. The session provides trainees with updates on new equipment, policies and procedures related to winter highway maintenance operations.
 
“We have more than 1,500 snowplow operators clearing 30,000 lane miles of state highway each winter to ensure that motorists can get to where they want to go.” said Transportation Commissioner Tom Sorel. “Making sure they arrive safe at their destination is our priority.”
