Free NFPA Online Electric Vehicle Training for 12,000 Volunteer and Underserved U.S. Fire Departments

Posted & filed under News.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has received a $225,000 grant from General Motors to deliver its electric vehicle (EV) training for free to 12,000 volunteer and underserved fire departments throughout the U.S. The funding comes at a critical time, as more EVs continue to enter the roadways but many fire departments remain untrained in effectively mitigating associated incidents.

Through the General Motors grant, the NFPA will work in coordination with U.S. fire service organizations and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Clean Cities Coalitions to conduct outreach among targeted audiences to maximize participation in the NFPA Electric Vehicle Safety training program, which will be provided online at no cost for one year to all volunteer and part-time members of the U.S. fire service. Fire departments that would like to register for the course can do so by clicking the button below which leads to the NFPA catalog and apply this coupon code: “gmev1” (not case sensitive).
