In an effort to ensure Hoosier first responders are properly equipped and knowledgeable to respond to alternative fuel vehicle situations, Greater Indiana submitted an application to The Vectren Foundation in the Fall of 2016, to fund a one-day AFV training event.  After reviewing grant applications, The Vectren Foundation awarded Greater Indiana $14,000 to fund this event.

Over the last few years, AFVs have increased on the roads in Indiana, making it increasingly important to know how to properly respond in emergency situations. National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) is partnering with Greater Indiana Clean Cities to host this Alternative Fuel Vehicle Safety Training one-day course in Lafayette, IN. A lite breakfast and lunch will be provided.

This course was created to provide guidance on how to safely deal with emergency situations involving alternative fuel passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, and commercial fleet vehicles. The NAFTC offers customized training in the form of classes and workshops to educate on topics such as biodiesel, ethanol, electric and natural gas (CNG and LNG). This course is FREE for a total of 25 members. Space is limited so be sure to register by clicking the link above!
