Some surety site duties involve not only meeting medical standards of the Personnel Reliability Program (PRP), but also of the US Department of Transportation (DOT) Commercial Driver's License requirements.  Such is the case with operators of these Modified Ammunition Vehicles which transport chemical munitions at the Pueblo, Colorado Chemical Agent Pilot Plant.
