Continuing on our cross-country training expedition, the EV Safety Training team visited the Illinois Fire Service Institute to deliver a classroom train-the-trainer session to Illinois first responders. One hundred students were in attendance, and State Farm Insurance provided a Chevy Volt and an extricated Honda Insight, as well as a hybrid vehicle battery.
The great attendance at this training reveals just how anticipated—and important!—the EV Safety Training program is to first responders in all states, not just the areas that we associate with high EV density.
The next stop of the EV Safety Training tour is the Missouri Fire and Rescue Training Institute on January 28. For more information, and to learn when we’re coming to your state, visit our calendar page.
