Safe Alternative Fuel Deployments in Mid-America

The Safe Alternative Fuel Deployments in Mid-America: a Training Initiative for Combined AFV and State Fire and Rescue Training (SAF-D) project will collaborate with the State Fire & Rescue Training Institutes in Missouri and Kansas to adapt existing alternative fuel safety curriculum to their existing training structures. The project will help incorporate low-cost training on alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure into state training systems, allowing far more first responders to be trained on these technologies than would be otherwise. In addition, the project will develop an online training resource for first responders that also leverages and promotes existing resources.
