Hydrogen Emergency Response Training for First Responders


The U.S. Department of Energy supports the implementation of hydrogen fuel cell technologies by providing hydrogen safety and emergency response training to first responders. A collaboration was formed to develop and deliver a one-day course that uses a mobile fuel cell vehicle (FCV) burn prop designed and built by Kidde Fire Trainers. This paper describes the development of the training curriculum, including the design and operation of the FCV prop; describes the successful delivery of this course to over 300 participants at three training centers in California; and discusses feedback and observations received on the course. Photographs and video clips of the training sessions will be presented.
