Hydrogen Safety - HyResponse

Educational materials: hydrogen safety basics for First Responders

The main objectives of the educational materials are to stress the specificities of hydrogen as a new energy carrier during its production, transport, delivery and use; to teach First Responders about the potential risks and hazards of hydrogen compared to traditional fuels (natural gas, petrol, propane, etc.); and to introduce First Responders to new FCH systems, infrastructures, associated risks, accident and incident scenarios and RCS.
