In a 2020 report, Safety Risks to Emergency Responders from Lithium-Ion Battery Fires in Electric Vehicles PDF, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recommended improvements to electric vehicle emergency response guides (ERGs), including compliance with the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO’s) Standard 17840: Road Vehicles – Information for First and Second Responders.
ERGs that comply with ISO 17840 help responders with standardized labels, colors, symbols and graphics to clearly identify a vehicle’s fuel/energy used for propulsion and other vital information, such as guidance for rescue teams on extricating occupants following an accident. Standardization makes this critical information much more complete, accurate, and accessible during training and response.
