The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) has launched a new website, afvsafetytraining.com, which serves as a portal for all the organization’s First Responder Safety Training courses, workshops and products.
Thanks to funding from two U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grants, the NAFTC has developed first responder curricula as part of the Clean Cities Learning Program and the Advanced Electric Drive Vehicle Education Program.
The NAFTC’s First Responder Safety Training features a suite of modern technology products and training for alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. Participants learn important information needed to safely respond to accidents involving these vehicles. These topics include key vehicle and fuel properties and characteristics, vehicle components, vehicle identification and recommended first responder procedures. The suite of products includes:
The site also provides information about and support for the first responder quick reference guide (QRG) mobile app, which is currently available for Apple devices and will soon be accessible on Android devices.
