    Lightbulb Hybrid / Electric Vehicles

    Our unit covers a heavy industrial area that uses hybrid electric burden carriers to full size electric hybird cars (Ford Escapes). Any info / literature available on disconnecting power? Looking to get some more in depth training for the crew.

    Some of these vehicles have 80volt battery systems (that can deliver quit a jolt.)

    Lightbulb Check the Extrication Forum

    Brother, not trying to school you here but this thread also has a better forum. From the main forum page scroll down to the extrication forums. In there there is tons of talk about hybrids and some very knowledgeable people with real experience.

    Also,invite mechanics from dealers that sell hybrids to teach your people what they know so you don't cut the orange wires right off the bat.They can be a vast source of knowledge and if yours is a vollie department,you can recruit them and have that skill set for use.
    Also,this month's Firehouse has more info about hybrid Tahoes that can be useful.
