SEATTLE

Hybrid & electric cars are increasing their numbers on the road. But this means that more MVA’s involve these cars. Firefighters have unique concerns in these situations, such as electrocution, an exploding battery & the lack of noise when a car is running & even moving.  So firefighters in Seattle are getting trained by car experts on battery-charged electric & hybrid cars.
