Hydrogen and First Responders Webinar
Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Please join us for a webinar on June 3oth at 12pm. This webinar will discuss hydrogen and its particular implications for those in the first-responder community. Hydrogen presents excellent opportunities for diversifying the nation’s energy portfolio, but, as with all new fuels and technologies, early adopters must understand its specific characteristics and the safety aspects associated with it. Local and state decision makers, fire, law enforcement, and medical personal will be able to learn about the properties of hydrogen, its use in fuel cells and stationary power, and potential hazards. Particular attention will be give to the differences between hydrogen and petroleum.

The webinar will be co-hosted by the Clean Energy States Alliance. The US Department of Energy Fuel Cell Technologies Program is providing assistance and support.
