IAFF: Solar PV Safety for Firefighters

With consumers going solar in nearly every state, the likelihood that firefighters will encounter solar electric systems on residential and commercial properties is increasing dramatically every year. Developed by the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC), the Solar PV Safety for Firefighters Course is designed to give firefighters the knowledge necessary to feel confident and safe when responding to fires on Solar PV-equipped structures, to better understand the potential hazards.
