SCC’s presentation on October 22 will take place during the session “Standards and Training Needed to Accelerate EV Growth”. It will be given in tandem with the United States-based NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). The Canadian program will train police, fire and emergency personnel to safely respond to accidents involving electric and hybrid vehicles.
