As more and more PV systems are being installed, the need to educate first responders is critical. Hosted by the Southeast Solar Training Network (SSTN), the morning session was designed to assist trainers in developing courses for first responders and firefighters. The workshop was developed and coordinated with help from the University of Central Florida Building and Fire Code office. Renowned solar trainer and educator, Jim Dunlop, conducted the training.
