02. Welcome to EV FireSafe

What is EV FireSafe?

EV FireSafe is a private company that received seed funding from the Australian Department of Defence to research electric vehicle high voltage battery fires & emergency response, particularly where the EV is connected to energised charging.

This world-leading research & SME knowledge is referenced by the Australasian Fire Agencies Council, National Fire Chief's Council (UK), National Fire Protection Association (US) & various EV manufacturers such as Tesla.

This data-driven knowledge has been leveraged to build online training, via our learning management platform,

Additionally, our growing global team of firefighting & battery experts provide consulting advice for global private businesses concerned about battery fire risks.

We also provide tailored presentations & training, live or online. Please contact to discuss your project, our schedule of fees & how we can help.
