Rural Reimagined Logo

Rural Reimagined seeks to build an EV ecosystem in five Appalachian states, including West Virigina, to demonstrate how EVs can be available for all citizens, and how EVs can have a positive impact on local economies. NAFTC is helping to build the workforce and create awareness about EVs. If you’re a West Virginian with valid driver’s licenses and insurance, you may qualify to borrow an EV for free under the Rural Reimagined project. LEARN MORE (link to Rural Reimagine page)

-Online Course-

The NVFC in collaboration with the NAFTC and the WVU Fire extension is proud to offer this 1-hour awareness course sponsored by General Motors.

The NVFC in collaboration with the NAFTC and the WVU Fire extension is proud to offer this 1-hour awareness course sponsored by General Motors. As the number of electric vehicles on the roadways increases, it is important for first responders to understand how a response involving these types of vehicles is different than those with an internal combustion engine. This course will introduce first responders to hybrid and electric vehicles, share data and resources, and equip the first responder with the knowledge and tools to respond more safely when a hybrid or electric vehicle is involved in an incident.
