First Responders Electrical Hazards Training

CEC understands the importance of teaching electrical safety. The goal of the First Responders Electrical Hazards Training is to help first responders work safely in emergencies where electric utility lines are involved. Firefighters, police, EMTs and others, who are typically first on the scene in an emergency, face the greatest risk from electrical contacts and fires. Understanding the potential dangers and learning how to deal with them correctly makes everyone safer.

  • The training will include a hotline demonstration and an EMS Electrical Safety presentation. In addition to a wealth of knowledge, attendees will receive light refreshments and informational materials. All materials and information provided are designed to supplement, not replace, your organization’s standard operating procedures (SOPs).  

First Responders Electrical Hazard Training is typically held in the Spring. Check the Power Lines newsletter or local advertising for the date of upcoming events. You can also call and ask to be added to our mailing list. 

We are also able to bring this training to your event or organization. To request a training, call Emily Shumaker at 800-521-0570 x 2152 or complete the form below.
