Hagerstown Community College is offering a course titled “Solar and Wind Systems Firefighter Safety,” on Saturday, June 16 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the STEM Building, room 208.

The course is designed to help fire companies develop best practices for responding to structural fires that include solar panels, wind generators and off-grid battery backup systems.

Participants will gain a basic understanding of alternative energy delivery systems and learn to activate disconnects for these systems.

The course fee is $80. Firefighters are encouraged to apply for grant funding to receive a tuition reduction.

The project is funded, in part, by a grant awarded under the Community-Based Job Training Grants, as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.
