Firefighter training video uses Tesla electric car
Using the can-opener on a Model SFirefighters are often first responders after car accidents, and sometimes rescuing people requires using hydraulic rescue tools (aka the jaws of life) on a vehicle; these situations can be very dangerous, so they need training to stay safe, and that now means getting familiar with electric vehicles. While quality engineering can mitigate risks from EVs, like they have done with gasoline and diesel vehicles, they can't be totally avoided.
"This video uses the new Tesla Model S to help explain basic electrical concepts, high voltage components, and operational considerations that rescuers should be aware of when operating around an electric vehicle. [...] This 40 min long video does not fully prepare rescuers to operate at EV incidents, but it does nicely compliment instruction received from a qualified EV Instructor."
