This EVent is targeted for first responders within Somerset County. However, the invitation list already contains out of county personnel.

 The presentation will be given by Mike Hornsby, Firefighter from Princeton Junction and a member of NJEVA. After that, first responders will inspect our vehicles to identify high voltage cut-off and some other safety features. This will be our opportunity to talk about benefits of driving electric and how safe they actually are. If you know more technical details regarding your vehicle, please state so at the registration. You will be given priority if we get overbooked. By registering, you consent that you will be doing just that. You may not be able to attend the presentation room as space will be limited. 
We are working on having light refreshments available for you!
