NFPA to launch EV Safety Training for Law Enforcement

Blog Post created by andrewklock Employee on Oct 3, 2012

Earlier this week, NFPA attended IACP 2012 to announce the development and release of Electric Vehicle Safety Training for Law Enforcement! On October 23rd, NFPA Instructor, Jason Emery, will be heading to New York to deliver EV Safety Training at the New York State Police Academy! 


During this EV train-the-trainer session, we will be teaching New York State Police trainers on how to instruct the 14,000 troopers, recruits and veterans that are serviced by their Academy each year. In addition to training State Police personnel, the Academy also provides instruction in areas of criminal investigation, forensics and other topical issues to members of other police departments and outside agencies who routinely look to the State Police for assistance.

This is the first of two sessions currently planned at the Academy. This all-day training, specifically designed and adapted for law enforcement personnel involved in emergency response and post-crash investigations, will consist of both a classroom portion and a hands-on component - much like our Fire Service version of the training! Stay tuned for updates to learn more about our other law enforcement EV training products, scheduled for release later this year.
