EV are here to stay

You may not be a fan of electric vehicles, but their numbers are doubling year on year, with over 40 million on the road in early 2024. Most major manufacturers have announced dates on which they'll stop making internal combustion vehicles. They're here and we need to adapt!

EVs pose new risks

The EV sector moves rapidly, and there are new risks and challenges for responders when an EV is involved in collision or fire. EV FireSafe's data-driven training is carefully designed and delivered to provide scenarios and solutions based on real-world incidents.

Safety around EVs is key

It doesn't matter which uniform you wear, you have to learn new techniques (and adapt familiar ones!) to ensure your safety - and that of your crew - around electric cars, buses and trucks. EV FireSafe's training breaks down complex concepts to simple language to make you safer, faster.

What are the learning outcomes?

Identify risks and hazards

Electric Responders can independently identify risks and hazards of electric vehicles in road traffic collision and fire

Act to ensure safety

Electric Responders can confidently determine how to mitigate risks and hazards for crew and occupant safety

Techniques, tactics, tools

Electric Responders have advanced knowledge of techniques and tactics, and can incorporate the right tools, to manage an EV incident

Real-world incident insights

Electric Responders have experience with EV FireSafe Skills Drills they can use to share life-saving knowledge with their crew and agency

Understand thermal runaway

Electric Responders know how to monitor for, and detect, the early warning signs of EV battery fire and understand the process and consequences 

Post incident considerations

Electric Responders can identify battery fire risk using EV FireSafe's EV ABC and communicate that to secondary responders
