Filling Critical Gaps through Innovative Cradle-to-Grave Training

This Filling Critical Gaps through Innovative Cradle-to-Grave Training project will leverage existing alternative fuel vehicle curricula that had been developed through a previous Department of Energy project to provide training to fire marshals, code officials, mechanics and technicians, and first responders. This training, which will focus on issues related to compressed natural gas, propane, and electricity, will address critical training needs in a 4-state area in the South Central U.S. The project will also develop a Future Action Plan, which will collect best practices and lessons learned, as well as describe how to move forward with additional training in the coming years.
