The National Fire Protection Association has created a nationwide program as an effort to educate firefighters and emergency responders on how to deal with electric vehicle incidents. Their initiative offers research, articles, videos, and online training. Through this training, fire respondents will learn about the basic electrical concepts of these vehicles, as well as how to deal with incidents that may occur.
Several electric vehicle manufacturers offer safety information on their websites. This allows fire respondents to view specifications for a variety of different electric vehicle models.
