NFPA Electric Vehicle Safety Standards Report Published
In the last several years, the U.S. has seen a resurgence of electric and hybrid electric vehicles. With many more of these cars on the roadway, implementing safety codes and standards associated with these vehicles remains paramount, according to the National Fire Protection Research Foundation (NFPA).
The Fire Protection Research Foundation (Foundation), an affiliate of NFPA, recently released a report on the findings from the Second Annual Electric Vehicle Safety Standards Summit held Sept. 27-28 in Detroit. More than 140 fire and electric safety professionals gathered at the meeting to review and refine the current implementation plan for electric vehicles and identify and address any obstacles related to fire and electrical safety standards.
Co-hosted by NFPA and SAE International, the second Summit is a continuation of the dialogue from the original Summit held in October 2010 that focused on building infrastructure supporting electrical vehicles and the concerns of the emergency response community, in addition to safety-related codes and standards issues.
