Be prepared to address hazards and handle EV challenges safely and effectively with NFPA®'s new Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Emergency Field Guide*, 2103 Edition.

NFPA, the fire and life safety leader, presents the Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Emergency Field Guide 2013 Edition, your source for the latest facts on safe response to electric and hybrid vehicle incidents involving damaged high voltage batteries, battery fires, extrication challenges, submersion, and charging stations. This one-stop guide covers the vital aspects of EV/hybrid hazard awareness and procedures -- including information from related NFPA codes and new consistent Moditech Rescue Solutions® vehicle diagrams.

Featuring 32 new vehicles added to the 2013 Edition and updated technical data reviewed by auto manufacturers.

Procedures and full-color graphics are specific to each vehicle, with new vehicle renderings developed by Moditech Rescue Solutions, the world leader in extrication diagrams. Coverage includes:

  • Identification/Initial Response
  • Immobilization/Disabling
  • Spill Hazards
  • Submersion
  • Fire/Re-ignition
  • Crash/Extrication
  • High Voltage battery vehicle safety information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Fire Protection Research Foundation

Vehicle immobilization. Disabling high-voltage and SRS systems. Conducting safe extrication cuts with new Moditech Rescue Solutions diagrams. Executing vehicle recovery and disposal. It's all here!

Make sure you have the latest on safe response! 13.9 million electrified vehicles are predicted to be on the world's roadways within five years. Damaged batteries, silent operation, high strength steel and fires involving these types of vehicles pose the highest degree of potential danger to both response teams and vehicle occupants -- including toxic fumes, high voltage, and delayed fire hazards. NFPA's Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Emergency Field Guide 2013 Edition is essential for fire and rescue personnel, EMS technicians, law enforcement, towing/recovery and salvage professionals. (Spiralbound, Approx. 200 pp., 2013 Volume 2)

*NFPA is offering the PDF of the Guide free of charge to the US Fire Service.
