DOE Honors Fuel Cell Safety Training Efforts

June 18, 2015


The U.S. Department of Energy recently honored Jennifer Hamilton, a safety and education specialist at the California Fuel Cell Partnership, for her work in developing hydrogen fuel cell safety training for first responders.

Hamilton received a special award from the DOE’s Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program, in recognition of her years of educational work in California communities where hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and stations already exist or will be coming.

Most recently, Hamilton collaborated with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to create the online National Hydrogen Safety Training Resource for Emergency Responders. 

Hamilton works with the California Office of the State Fire Marshal, the DOE, the National Fire Academy and the National Fire Protection Association to implement first responder education. She also actively participates in various safety, codes and standards groups, including SAE International, CSA Group and ISO on efforts related to vehicle and fueling station safety.
