National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC)

Gaseous Fuels and Gaseous Fuel Vehicles Training


Rising concerns on the effects of fossil fuels on the world’s environment combined with their increased cost when compared with alternative fuels are making gaseous fuel vehicles more common on our nation’s roadways. With increased vehicle use, the chance of these new technologies being involved in a vehicular accident also increases. First responders need to be trained on the differences between these vehicles and their conventional counterparts and on the proper procedures for safely addressing incidents involving compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, propane autogas, and hydrogen powered vehicles. This course is designed to educate firefighters, law enforcement, and emergency medical services personnel on the properties and procedures to follow when dealing with gaseous fuel vehicles. Anyone can attend these classes as a participant, however only a first responder with a training background can participate in a train-the-trainer specific course.

Taught by certified NAFTC instructors, this course will enable you to:

  • List the key properties, characteristics, and functions of gaseous fuels
  • Explain the operation of gaseous fuel vehicles
  • Recognized gaseous fuel vehicle components
  • Identify the risks and hazards common to gaseous fuel storage
  • Explain the major components of gaseous fuel vehicle fueling systems
  • Describe gaseous fuel vehicle fueling station safety systems
  • Identify the risks involve with the transport and handling of gaseous fuels
  • List personal protective equipment necessary for first responders when responding to a gaseous fuel vehicle incident
  • List the steps required to secure a gaseous fuel vehicle
  • List the steps for rescuing occupants from a damaged gaseous fuel vehicle
  • Demonstrate proper fire response to gaseous fuel fire
