Hydrogen Safety - HyResponse

Welcome to the HyResponse project's website

HyResponse is a 'Coordination and Support Action (CSA)' project supported by EC Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (June 2013 - September 2016). The project aimed to establish the World's first comprehensive training programme for first responders, i.e. a European Hydrogen Safety Training Platform (EHSTP), to facilitate safer deployment of FCH systems and infrastructure. The developed core training programme is threefold: educational training, including the state-of-the-art knowledge in hydrogen safety, operational training on mock-up real scale hydrogen and fuel cell installations, and innovative virtual reality training reproducing in detail an entire accident scenario, including influence of first responder's intervention. Three pilot training sessions were organised during the project. The Emergency Response Guide, explaining details of intervention strategy and tactics, was developed and included into the pilot training sessions to receive attendees' feedback, which is also available for download at the project website. The Advisory and Consultative Panel were established to engage as much as possible European stakeholders and provide highest outreach of the project results. EHSTP was developed and available to train first responders to deal with all safety aspects for a range of hydrogen applications, including passenger vehicles, buses, forklifts, refuelling stations, backup power, stationary fuel cells for combined production of heat and power, etc.

The project website will stay active for training of newcomers after the end of the project (September2016). The website hosts the deliverables of the HyResponse Project, International Curriculum on hydrogen safety training for First Responders, Emergency Response Guide, links to relevant resources and RCS, information on the HyResponse pilot training sessions, etc, all available for download .
