2nd Annual Electric Vehicle Safety Standards Summit

The 2nd Annual Electric Vehicle Safety Standards Summit is a continuation of the dialogue begun at last year's groundbreaking Summit initiated in order to support the rapid implementation of electric and hybrid electric vehicles in North America. The Summit provides a forum in which all relevant individuals, organizations and agencies can contribute to the development of action plans regarding the codes and standards necessary to effectively address safety as it relates to electrified vehicles and their infrastructure. Last year's Summit led to the identification of three areas for action plan development: Vehicle Charging Infrastructure; Battery Hazards Identification and Protection; and Training for Emergency Responders. An 85 page summary report of last year's Summit is available at www.nfpa.org/assets/files/PDF/Research/RFUSNEVSSSummit.pdf.

Safety representatives of vehicle and equipment manufacturers, fire protection specialists, electrical safety organizations and emergency responders, as well as governmental entities at the federal, state and local level involved in enhancing consumer safety and interagency communications, are encouraged to participate in the Summit.
