An interview with our EV trainer Jason Emery was featured on FirefighterNation.com, part of the FireRescue magazine network. The article and interview include a great summary of the potential challenges posed by electric vehicles and outline resources available to first responders through NFPA’s EV Safety Training project.
Jason took time to discuss recent developments in the field of electric vehicle safety and what firefighters and first responders can expect from our nationwide training project.
“We’ve developed a class that’s a national level curriculum for responding to hybrid and electric vehicles,” said Emery. “And over the next year and half we’re getting out to each of the states and conducting train-the-trainer sessions through the state fire academies, so their instructional personnel can turn it around and get it to the folks in the field.”
As Jason mentions in the story, our nationwide train-the-trainer session continues this fall in several states. View the full calendar and sign up for upcoming trainings. While you’re at it, check out Firefighter Nation’s Facebook and like this story there as well.
