Alternative Fuelled Vehicles(AFVs)
& Electric Vehicles(EVs)



Responders & Recovery agents faced with an AFV/EV involved in RTC and/or fire NEED training

to ensure their own safety, public safety and safe & effective resolution of the incident in a dynamic and complex environment.












Our courses are designed by Responder SMEs to meet the Responders training needs! 

Most EV training offerings are from Motor Industry training providers, designed for Mechanics & Technicians working on EVs

in workshops environments - not the complex and dynamic scenarios faced by Responders!

Our Electric Vehicles(EV) courses cover:

  • awareness of the increasing variety of AFVs/EVs amongst Responders and practitioners

  • the hazards associated with different fuel types when involved in RTC and/or fire

  • safe approach, information gathering and ERGs (Emergency Response Guides)

  • thermal events and containment/suppression tactics

  • extrication & trauma care considerations and options

  • 'making safer' using our IAIIM protocol, and handing over risk information, and 

  • Recovery, transport & storage and Investigation 


Courses can be tailored to suit Emergency Responders (Local Authority/Airport FRS, Police & Ambulance, 

Highways and Recovery), Salvage site staff and Insurance Assessors/agents.

Having been consulted on the creation of the new National Occupational Standards for EV Responders 

our courses are mapped against EV02a & EV02b

and can be delivered as 'Certificated' or IMI Accredited (Professional Qualification Certificate)

Electric Vehicle(EV) Incident Responder courses (IMI TechSafe

Professional Achievement Certificate)


FireWise UK can deliver our one day Electric Vehicle(EV) Incident Responder courses 

with delegates achieving an IMI TechSafe Professional Achievement Certificate


For the Fire and Rescue Service our courses are also developed in line with

the NFCC/UKRO Extrication Competence framework

our EV courses contribute to or meet 115 of the 210 competencies of the framework.




Courses are designed for Level 1&2 Responders, Level 3 Commanders and Level 4 RTCIs/Train the Trainers

and are delivered by Level 5 Subject Matter Experts.

Our AFV/EV courses can also be delivered as a webinar to suit remote workforces.

"Thanks for the course, it was very useful.  I have attended a lot of seminars explaining the dangers but, until yours, none that have a plan for dealing with them.  We are integrating your SOP into our own policy".
