New Sponsorship Program At Hybrid Hazards
According to Hybrid Hazards, failure to stabilize, disable 12v and shut down high voltage system on a hybrid electric vehicle prior to performing duties may result in serious injury, even death, from unexpected movement of the vehicle, severe burns or electric shock from high voltage components or unintentional deployment of the SRS & stored gas inflators.
Sponsorship will help provide HEV Safety Training for First Responders and help keep them SAFE when having to work in and around high voltage, hybrid electric vehicles.
