SolSmart Training on Fire Safety for Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems

By Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (other events)

Wednesday, March 20 2019 6:00 PM 9:30 PM

Please join DVRPC for a workshop which will provide fire fighters and emergency personnel with training on the safety precautions associated with recognizing and disabling solar photovoltaic (PV) systems during emergencies. Pennsylvania and New Jersey have seen an increase in solar PV installations on homes and businesses, as well as ground-mounted systems which presents new challenges to first-responders. This 3 hour workshop will address:

Identifying solar PV systems on-site
Recognizing the safety hazards associated with PV systems and how to avoid them
How to safely de-energize a solar PV system

Egan Waggonner from Cadmus will be the workshop trainer.
A free pizza dinner will be served at 6:00 pm. The training is free and will be held from 6:30pm – 9:30pm.

Workshops are co-sponsored by the Camden County Board of Freeholders and the Montgomery County Planning Commission.
