    LCF is proud to bring these AFV training courses in Houma as part of a grant that will fund nearly a dozen alternative fuel safety classes in Louisiana over a two year period. 

    Fire fighers, emergency medical services (EMS) & law enforcement personnel need to be trained on the differences between these vehicles and their conventional counterparts and on the proper procedures for safely addressing incidents involving natural gas, propane autogas, hydrogen, electric drive, and biofuel powered vehicles. This course is designed to educate 1st responders on the properties and procedures to follow when dealing with alternative fuel vehicles.
