Proven Technology to Deal with Today's Growing Lithium- ion Battery Hazards

August 13, 2024 | 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. ET Live Online 









About the Course

A growing use of lithium-ion battery powered equipment within the aviation industry has left aircrafts, airports, car parks, hangars, rental centers, and runways vulnerable to fires capable of endangering lives and collapsing structures. As efforts to reduce emissions and embrace a green future continues to transform our airports, we must consider innovative fire suppression solutions to protect the public, flight teams, and our framework. Join us to identify these hazards within your organization and discover an array of fire protection technology at your disposal.

Join us for the one hour webinar live, led by instructor Jeffrey Bonkoski.
