Fire Department responding to a burning EV inside a home garage

If you operate a Authorised Treatment Facility and handle hybrid and electric vehicles, you need to be equipped with EV fire blankets as part of your Fire Fighting response and any FPP (Fire Prevention Planning).

This video shows how the Colorado Fire Department and their Hazardous Materials Team responded to a burning EV inside a home garage. Thankfully, the residents safely evacuated and were not injured. Well worth a watch to see how fast and effective these blankets are at both extinguishing and cooling a lithium-based fire.
