Solar Photovoltaic Training for Fire Personnel and Other First Responders

March 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free
Please join DVRPC for a workshop that will provide firefighters 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’ rooftops, as well as more ground-mounted systems. These systems can present new challenges to first-responders. The workshop trainer will be Egan Waggonner from Cadmus.

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

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.
