NFPA Bolsters EV Safety Training Team

New member Ron Moore has received 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.

Ron Moore, an expert in extrication and automobile rescue, has joined the National Fire Protection Association's Electric Vehicle Safety Training Project to serve as subject matter expert and trainer. Moore has more than 32 years of experience in the fire service, according to NFPA. Along with Jason Emery, Chris Pepler, and Matt Paiss, Moore will lead electric vehicle safety train-the-trainer sessions with which NFPA hopes to reach first responders in all 50 states by 2013. The Electric Vehicle Safety Training Project is funded by a $4.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Training has taken place thus far in 27 states, and 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, senior project manager for the 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."

According to NFPA, Moore wrote one of most widely used training manuals in the field, "Vehicle Rescue and Extrication, 2nd Edition," as well as 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," he said. "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."

He has received 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, according to NFPA.
