More electric vehicles (EVs) are on the road today than ever before. To help first responders prepare for incidents involving EVs, the DFWCC is offering a FREE, one-hour webinar that will inform participants about how to:

  • Properly and safely identify, assess, and approach an electric drive vehicle 
  • Identify potential hazards of working with an EV

Chris Womock is a Captain with the Indianapolis Fire Department with 28 years of fire service experience. He has been with the Indianapolis Fire Department for almost 24 years, and during that time, he has served as a Lieutenant on an Engine and as part of the Fire Administration in the Special Ops Division as the Rescue Coordinator. Chris has been responsible for 15 extrication tactical teams. 

He is currently finishing his associates’ degree in Fire Science and is in the process of obtaining a Bachelors in Fire Administration. Capt. Womock not only presents NAFTC’s rigorously vetted safety information, he shares his personal stories and insights about dealing with advanced technology vehicles in a way that is meaningful to other first responders like himself.

Attendees of this training will receive a certificate upon completion.
