Hydrogen Safety for First Responders

DOE's Introduction to Hydrogen Safety for First Responders is a Web-based course that provides an
“awareness level” overview of hydrogen for fire, law enforcement, and emergency medical personnel.
This multimedia tutorial acquaints first responders with hydrogen, its basic properties, and how it compares
to other familiar fuels; hydrogen use in fuel cells for transportation and stationary power; potential hazards;
initial protective actions should a responder witness an incident; and supplemental resources including
videos, supporting documents, and links relevant to hydrogen safety.
