The East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition and the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium have partnered to offer first responders safety training for dealing with the differences in alternative fuel vehicles -- EVs, hybrids and fuels like natural gas or propane, among others -- versus traditional gas-powered vehicles after an accident.
The training will cover:
* Electric drive vehicles including EVs and hybrids
*Gaseous fuel vehicles including natural gas and propane
*A hands-on safety training portion with these vehicles
Training will be 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday, February 26 at the Knoxville Fire Training Academy at 1301 Prosser Road.
Tickets are $60 and may be purchased through February 19 at http://firstrespondertraining.eventbrite.com/
