PV 210.01 Firefighter Safety and Renewable Energy Systems (Online)
In the past, only firefighters in remote or rural areas ever expected to see renewable energy systems during emergency responses. Today, the proliferation of utility interactive photovoltaic systems in urban, suburban, and interface areas means that all firefighters and their commanders will encounter these systems eventually.
Participants in this course will learn suggested response guidelines for firefighter safety with renewable energy systems, National Electrical Code implications for both PV installers and firefighters, and discuss scenarios to increase awareness of procedures critical to safety.
