How to support the public safety education campaign
Fire departments worldwide are experiencing an increase of fire incidents involving lithium-ion battery (LIB)-powered devices. As these devices become more prevalent in use, we are seeing more related injuries and deaths.
UL’s Fire Safety Research Institute has launched a public safety education campaign to amplify preventative and protective measures that the public can take to mitigate the risks of LIB-powered devices going into thermal runaway.
A key objective of the campaign is to educate the fire service on the fire dynamics of LIB fires so they are comfortable educating their communities and aware of the operational best practices to extinguish these fires.
