About the event
There are over 22 million alternative fuel vehicles on American roadways today. We have developed the Alternative Fuel Vehicles Training Program to help firefighters handle the unique challenges presented by these new technologies. This program explains the most common fuel system types, components significant to rescuers, safety precautions, and procedures for incidents involving alternative fueled vehicles such as Electric (EV), Hybrid, Hydrogen, Natural Gas, and Propane. This program includes four hours of classroom learning and four hours of hands-on training, including an overview of the vehicle’s safety restraint systems, special considerations for Electric Vehicle Extrication, and Electric Vehicle fire operations.
