ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for proper education and training of emergency responders in minimizing risks involving hybrid vehicles. Emergency responders should be familiarized with several information identification methods of hybrid vehicles. They must also take into consideration the location of high-voltage components because there are no extrication techniques specific to hybrid vehicles. In addition, emergency responders should educate themselves on the danger of vehicles.
