Training to Safely Handle Renewable Energy Sources

To help the fire service handle the unique challenges presented by these new renewable energy technologies, NFPA has developed Energy Storage and Solar Systems Safety Training, Fire Service Edition*. The enhanced three-hour module uses engaging videos, animations, simulations, and review exercises to inform firefighters about basic electrical theory, types of PV installations, battery chemistries, pre-incident planning, and response strategies. Fire leaders and training personnel are encouraged to educate themselves and others on ESS failure modes, pre-incident planning, shutdown, ventilation, and other emergency response considerations.
