Seminar: Responding to alternative vehicle accidents safely

2011 Chevrolet Volt - NRMA Drivers seat

 As hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles, like the Chevy Volt seen here, become regular features on the road, so too do accidents involving these cars.                                                         

As hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles become regular features on the road, so too do accidents involving these cars.

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/
