Introduction

Alternative Fuel Vehicles are growing in popularity, with over 47 million of these vehicles on the road today. With even more coming in the close future, it is essential that responders have a solid understanding of the concepts associated with these vehicles.

To close this gap in knowledge, this project has developed comprehensive awareness training programs equipped with safety videos, animations, and reference material to train our nation’s first and second responder communities with the knowledge and skills necessary to work safely with these new technologies. Part of this effort included an earlier workshop titled “Alternative Fuel Vehicle Safety Summit”. For the NFPA training materials addressing this topic, see: AFVTechSafety.org.
