Description

Law Enforcement Safety Training for Alternative Fuel Vehicles

No Cost-Targeted-First Responder Training - 4 hrs CLEET credit available

Alternative fuel vehicles are becoming more common on Oklahoma's roadways. With increased vehicle use, the chance of these new technologies being involved in a collision also increases. Firefighters, EMS, and law enforcement need to be trained on the differences in these vehicles and the proper procedures for safely addressing incidents involving natural gas, propane autogas, hydrogen, electric drive and biofuel powered vehicles.

This classroom-style course is designed to educate law enforcement personnel on how to safely interact with an alternative fuel vehicle involved in a traffic incident. This includes education on the fuels, how these vehicle differ from conventionally fueled vehicles, and proper, audience-specific procedures to implement when dealing with a collision involving an alternative fuel vehicle.

The course you are registering for is designed to train Law Enforcement trainers. EMS and firefighter trainers should register for one of our other targeted training classes.
