Nationwide AFV Emergency Responder, Recovery, Reconstruction & Investigation Training
The Nationwide AFV Emergency Responder, Recovery, Reconstruction & Investigation Training project will create new curricula as well as update existing materials created by the National Fire Protection Association on alternative fuel and plug-in electric vehicles. Building on an already successful resource, the project will expand existing training to encompass all alternative fuel vehicles, which it does not currently. The training will provide resources to the spectrum of responder and investigation operations that would be involved in a vehicle accident, including fire department, law, emergency medical service, fire investigator, recovery & reconstruction, and tow and salvage personnel. The NFPA will create materials that will be nationally-available and customized for each audience, including online resources, Train-the-Trainer classroom programs, videos and on-scene reference materials.
