Alternative Fuel Vehicle Training for Firefighters

The Illinois Fire Service Institute is offering an Alternative Fuel Vehicles Training Course for firefighters. This course introduces students to new technologies not encountered in the past that can impact rescue efforts. Topics covered include hybrid or electric driven vehicles, alternative fuel systems, dangerous drive train components, hazardous mechanical and hydraulic systems, plus more. Rescue challenges associated with air bags and their deployment and detonation systems, pre-tension systems and other passive restraint devices throughout the passenger compartment are also discussed. Methods of construction, vehicle body components and their materials of construction offer challenges not found at accident scenes in the past. The course is a recommended follow-up class to the Basic Auto Extrication course.

This course will be held in conjunction with the Illinois Alliance for Clean Transporation’s Green Drives Conference and Expo at the IBEW / NECA Technical Institute on May 9, 2024. Many alternative fuel vehicles will be on display during the conference for training attendees to look at and ask questions.
