The National Transportation Safety Board says the U.S. is woefully unprepared to deal with EV fires, which require different strategies than gasoline vehicle fires.
31 percent of fire departments don’t train for EV fires, and half say they don’t have special protocols in place to deal with EVs after a crash, the agency’s report found.
Note the caveats, though. There are more than 29,000 fire departments in the U.S. This survey only asked for information from 32 of them.
