Tow Truck Operator Alternative Fuel Vehicle Safety Training

Even though tow operators are not at the front line of emergency response, they play a key role in handling vehicles involved in an incident. Alternative fuel vehicles are no more dangerous than a conventionally fueled vehicle, just different. This difference requires knowledge and training on the unique procedure to follow when dealing with new technology vehicles.
