NTSB Survey Says Half of Fire Departments Have No Electric Vehicle Fire Protocols

Bloomberg reports only a quarter of US fire departments have dedicated training to fight electric vehicle fires and half of the departments have no protocols in place at all, according to a NTSB survey released Wednesday. The survey was conducted by the International Association of Fire Chiefs and the National Volunteer Fire Council for the NTSB following a series of crashes in which the batteries of electric vehicles caught fire. The “most aggressive” electric vehicle fires have involved lithium-based batteries, “which can self-ignite and are difficult to extinguish.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
