Rising concerns about the effects of fossil fuels on the world’s environment combined with their increased cost when compared with alternative fuels are making AFVs more common on our nation’s roadways. With increased vehicle use, the chance of these new technologies being involved in a vehicular accident also increases.
Firefighters need to be trained on the differences between these vehicles and their conventional counterparts and on the proper procedures for safely addressing incidents involving natural gas, propane autogas, hydrogen, electric drive, ethanol and biofuel powered vehicles. This course is designed to educate firefighters on the properties and procedures to follow when dealing with alternative fuel vehicles. Anyone can attend these classes as a participant, however only a firefighter with a training background can participate in a train-the-trainer specific course.
