First Responder Program


First Responders offered training on alternative fuel vehicles

In 2014 Police officers, firefighters, and others were offered two opportunities to attend full-day workshops to learn how to safely respond to accidents involving cars or trucks that run on natural gas, propane autogas, and electricity. The workshops took place at Lawson State Community College in Bessemer and Aug. 20 at Trenholm State Technical College in Montgomery.

The Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition facilitated the workshops in partnership with the National Alternative Fuel Training Consortium and the Center for Transportation and the Environment.

The hands-on safety training is available not only to fire and police officials but also to towing services, emergency medical technicians, ambulance companies, and others who might be called to accident scenes involving alternative fuel vehicles.

The certified trainers committed to going back to their departments/organizations and training their personnel.

Most responders know how to approach the dangers present when traditional gas/diesel fuels are involved. This course helped ensure they know what to do - and what not to do - in emergencies involving vehicles running on the increasingly popular alternative fuels.
