First responder training for EVs

Techstination feature for Thursday, August 18, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Training first responders to deal with emergencies involving electric vehicles.     As more and more EVs arrive…and the industry is moving rapidly in that direction… there are some safety concerns for first responders.   General Motors has created an EV First Responder Training Effort led by global product safety and systems engineer Joe McLaine…

“It runs a wide gamut from post incident, post crash, a whole host of things that we address some first responder concerns about.  We stand behind the safety of our product.  We really think that with some awareness and some training to help support them in their duties that this will help spur widespread adoption of electrified vehicles.”
