Tulsa Clean Cities Hosting NAFTC Courses for Alt Fuel Mishaps
Organizers are spreading the word that three targeted courses for first responders at accidents involving alternative fuel vehicles will be held late next month at the Oklahoma City Community College’s Professional Development Institute.
The courses were developed by West Virginia’s National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium and will be hosted by Tulsa Area Clean Cities organization.
“With an increased use of alternative fuel vehicles throughout Oklahoma, the chance of these new technologies being involved in a collision also increases,” states an announcement circulated today.
“Fire, emergency medical services (EMS), and law enforcement personnel need to be trained on the proper procedures for safely addressing incidents involving these new technologies,” the organization says.
“These three targeted courses feature techniques to safely respond to vehicle collisions, incidents and injuries involving alternative fuel vehicles. Additionally, the courses include information on alternative fuels, their properties and origins, and ways in which alternative fuel vehicles differ from conventionally fueled vehicles.”
