ANN ARBOR — As a part of the Michigan Green Fleets program, Clean Energy Coalition will host two eight-hour Alternative Fuel and Advanced Vehicle First Responder Safety Training workshops at the end of this month.

These events are designed specifically to reduce the risks taken by first responders when responding to accidents involving vehicles powered by natural gas, propane, or electricity. These workshops are restricted to certified first responders — firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical technicians — who are based in Michigan.

A National Alternative Fuel Training Consortium-certified trainer will provide instruction at both workshops and all supplemental materials will be included. Breakfast and lunch will also be provided at no cost.   Participation is limited, so register early! Each individual may only register for one of the two events: Monday, July 30 in room 124 of the Wisner-Bottrall Applied Tech Center of Grand Rapids Community College, 151 Fountain St. NE, Grand Rapids, and Tuesday, July 31 in the Ghafari Room, Room T123, of the Patterson Technology Building at Henry Ford Community College, 5101 Evergreen Road in Dearborn. Both sessions run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information about either workshop, please contact Kristin Jobin, Program Assistant at Greater Lansing Area Clean Cities, at (517) 925-8649, ext. 10 or via email at
