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 and aiming 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 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 will be organised during the project. The Emergency Response Guide, explaining details of intervention strategy and tactics, will be developed and included into the pilot training sessions to receive attendees' feedback. The Advisory and Consultative Panel will be established to engage as much as possible European stakeholders and provide highest outreach of the project results. The Panel membership will be open to first responders, site operators, representatives and hydrogen industry, and car manufacturers throughout Europe. A website will stay active for training of new comers after the end of the project. EHSTP will 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.
