NFPA Spurs the Safe Adoption of Electric Vehicles through Education and Outreach
Community preparedness planning and collaboration among electric vehicle ecosystem stakeholders can result in a greater understanding of electric vehicles and their benefits, more incentives for ownership, increased safety, and a more accommodating infrastructure, and can lead to increased EV adoption on the nation's roadways. In this project, NFPA augments its world-class, web-based EV training programs to include additional modules for charging station installers, code officials, utilities, dealerships, fleet owners, garages/maintenance facilities, insurance companies, and vehicle owners. NFPA is also expanding its existing crash reconstruction and tow and salvage operator programs to reflect the latest safety knowledge and tactics. The project involves developing a digital facilitation toolkit for Clean Cities coalitions and advising and assisting selected coalitions that will be responsible for conducting approximately 30 community preparedness assessment workshops for local community stakeholders.
