In an effort to distribute Electric Vehicle Safety Training to emergency responders across the U.S., NFPA's EV Safety Training team conducted 'train-the-trainer" sessions nationwide starting in July 2011. Since the launch of this highly-anticipated classroom training, NFPA successfully trained more than 2,200 emergency responder instructors. If you are not able to attend a classroom training somewhere in your state, but still wish to gain the tools and information needed to safely handle emergency situations involving EVs, PHEVs, and charging stations, please check out our online training.
