NFPA's Electric Vehicle (EV) Safety Training Project continues its expansion.

An EV training course is now available online for $19 per participant. To cover this cost, fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency medical service providers can apply for grants available through the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. For more information, visit the EV Safety Training site.

Another new component to this project is NFPA's EV Emergency Field Guide, which offers tips on properly responding to an EV in an accident. Moreover, details on a new EV safety summit have been announced. Learn all the specifics in the latest edition of NFPA Journal.
