North Carolina sheriffs, officers, and fleet managers attended Alliance AutoGas's law enforcement alternative fuel training at the Research & Technology Center in Asheville to learn more about the merits of propane autogas conversion.

The hands-on, one-day training covered converting fleets to propane autogas as an alternative fuel to lower emissions and save costs without a costly infrastructure requirement, according to the group.

Attendees listened to presentations from Ed Hoffman, president of Blossman Services, Inc.; Bill Eaker, senior environmental planner and coordinator at Land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition; Michael Phillips, retired captain of criminal enforcement at the Iredell County Sheriff's Office; and Steve Hightower, fleet manager for the City of Kingsport.

Alliance AutoGas team members led three training sessions on the topics of Safety Training, Refueling Dispenser Training, and Installation and Maintenance Training, along with a question-and-answer session. Ride-and-drives were available in the Dodge Charger, Ford Police Interceptor sedan, Ford P.I. Utility, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Impala Limited and the Ford Crown Vic.

Onsite fuel analysis and ROI calculations were available throughout the day to attendees, who were asked to bring their fleet's vehicle miles, estimated fuel cost and mpg information for a free consultation with the Alliance AutoGas team.
