This is the official newsletter from the CTIF-supported hydrogen training project HyResponder from Ulster University.
There is a threefold approach to training in HyResponder: educational training, operational training and virtual reality training.
Teaching materials on a number of hydrogen safety related topics (including releases, fires, liquid hydrogen, confined spaces etc. were developed to support this.
The materials include lectures at up to four levels (firefighter, crew commander, incident commander and specialist) and guides for training sequences supported by video content. All elements form part of a training package and underpin the European Emergency Response Guide. Please check out our current versions, which are open to feedback, on the HyResponder e-Platform.
The European Emergency Response Guide (EERG)
This Emergency Response Guide (EERG) on hydrogen and fuel cell applications for Responders is intended to be used by emergency response personnel, both by front-liners and commanders, from the moment they have received an emergency call until the final inspection. It is expected that this guide will support the decision-making personnel, who already have knowledge of emergency response operations and procedures. This revised version includes events related to liquefied hydrogen (LH2).
New vectors of mobility and transport such as buses, trucks and trains have been added. Moreover, a new set of operational tactical sheets have been inserted and the previous version has been enriched with multiple contributions. The latest version of the EERG is available for public consultation! If you have any comments and/or questions about this Emergency Response Guide, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
