Chattanooga: 2018 TN First Responder AFV Training
October 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0| $40
If you were responding to an accident and came across a vehicle powered with Liquefied Natural Gas, would you feel able to intervene? Alternative fuel vehicles are more common than ever on TN’s roads and highways, and it can be difficult to keep up with quickly-changing technologies and safety procedures.
Tennessee Clean Fuels wants to ensure that all of our talented First Responders in Tennessee have the training they need to respond to incidents involving Alternative Fuel Vehicles effectively.
In partnership with the National Fire Protection Association, TNCleanFuels is pleased to announce four First Responder Training Sessions for Alternative Fuel Vehicle Safety across TN in October, 2018. Thanks to our generous event sponsors, we have been able to secure enough funding for these sessions to ensure that the costs remain affordable for First Responders in all situations.
