USA: Automotive Rescue and Extrication Expert Ron Moore Joins NFPA’s Electric Vehicle Safety Training Project

April 6, 2012 — Ron Moore, one of fire service’s leading experts in extrication and automobile rescue, has joined the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Electric Vehicle Safety Training Project to serve on the program’s roster of subject matter experts and trainers. Moore, who has more than 32 years of experience in the fire service, joins Jason Emery, Chris Pepler and Matt Paiss to lead electric vehicle safety trainings across the United States.

NFPA’s Electric Vehicle Safety Training Project, funded by a $4.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, was developed to equip the nation’s first responders with the necessary abilities to address the growing number of electric and hybrid vehicles on the roads today. The state-level, train-the-trainer course began touring state fire academies in the summer of 2011 and has been delivered in 27 states
to-date. NFPA plans to reach first responders in all 50 states by 2013.

“Ron is a great addition to the program as the demand for this training continues to grow,” said Andrew Klock, Sr. Project Manager of NFPA’s Electric Vehicle Safety Training. “As we move closer to our goal of training first responders in all 50 states and beyond, his experience and talent will prove to be a valuable resource to all those who take part in the course.”

Moore has conducted thousands of advanced automobile rescue seminars and training programs across the country and around the globe, including Canada, Sweden, England, Germany and the Netherlands. He has authored one of most widely used training manuals in the field — Vehicle Rescue and Extrication, 2nd Edition — and written more than 200 published articles as a contributing editor for Firehouse magazine.

“NFPA has done a great job working with safety experts and auto manufacturers to put together a comprehensive curriculum of up-to-date information for electric vehicle emergency response,” said Moore. “Through the delivery of this train-the-trainer program, I am looking forward to interacting with fellow fire service instructors across the country and feel privileged to be able to assist them as they go forward with the local level implementation of this program.”

Moore’s work in automotive emergency response has earned him the International Society of Fire Service Instructors George D. Post Instructor of the Year Award and the International Association of Fire Chiefs Excellence in Rescue award.

As NFPA’s Electric Vehicle Safety Training continues to make its way to all 50 states, Moore is expected to begin conducting trainings in the Summer of 2012.
