August 24, 2023: Lithium-ion battery fire mitigation – live demo for fire safety officers 

This live demo of an electric vehicle battery fire will provide hands-on experience of EV fire mitigation, to help evolve guidelines for first responders. When exposed to off-nominal conditions, lithium-ion cells can go into thermal runaway, leading to smoke, fire, and high temperatures that can propagate to other cells in a battery module or pack. Efficient fire protection and suppression methods are thus critical to minimize the hazards associated with li-ion battery failure events. India saw many EV fires in 2022, and as these vehicles use Lithium-ion batteries, the fire mitigation and first responders need to be trained to address these battery fires. This demonstration will be conducted by the Maharashtra Fire Services with support from the Electrochemical Safety Research Institute of UL Research Institutes and FSAI.

August 25, 2023: National Conference on Fire Risk Reduction and Mitigation

On August 25, ULSE, in partnership with Bureau of Indian Standards, the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Maharashtra Fire Services, and FSAI, will host the NFRRM with the goal of developing a timebound action plan to address the new safety challenges associated with emerging technologies. The conference will feature an interactive Manthan (brainstorm) session for fire safety officers and stakeholders to develop a roadmap in building Surakshit Bharat (a safe, secure, and sustainable India). Through discussions on global best practices, NFRRM will drive collaborative efforts to equip technologically enabled fire safety officers and stakeholders for addressing operational challenges.
