As part of its Electric Vehicle Safety Training project, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is working with General Motors and Chevrolet to help prepare the nation's fire service and other first responders for the growing number of electric vehicles on the road.
Chevrolet is a global automotive brand, with annual sales of about 3.5 million vehicles in more than 130 countries. OnStar, a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Motors, is the leading provider of in-vehicle safety, security and communication services.
Online training for Chevrolet Volt: NFPA, Chevrolet, and OnStar have launched online Electric Vehicle Safety Training for the 2011 Chevrolet Volt, an extended-range electric vehicle that hit the roads last fall. The training features an inside look at the vehicle's technology and safety systems.
