Preparing for Electric Vehicle Fires

By Commissioner Steven Freeman
May 24, 2023

The Iselin Chemical Hook and Ladder Volunteer Fire Company is proactive in preparing for electric Vehicle (EV) fires with three innovative product.

Emergency Plug - Firefighter inserts the Emergency-plug in the charging socket of the Electric Vehicle. The Emergency Plug will communicate with the car’s software by making the car think it is being charged. As a result of this, it will not be possible to operate the car or for it to drive off. Every Electric Car and Hybrid has a mandatory built-in safety feature that will prevent the car from being operated once the car is being charged.

Car Fire Blanket - Any car fire is dangerous and toxic. A car fire in a gas station, tunnel, parking garage can be a disaster. The Bridgehill Car Fire Blanket enables you to contain the flames, smoke and toxic fumes in a car fire in seconds – and extinguish it in minutes. It’s one solution that can effectively handle fires in electric vehicle fires.

EV Extinguishing System - The Rosenbauer Battery Extinguishing System Technology (BEST) is the most advanced system available on the market with six years of research and development, and real-world application testing with automotive partners and fire departments.
Our Fire Department was the first in NJ to purchase the system.
