ABSTRACT
The article presents information on alternative vehicle power systems and fuels and how they may affect extrication operational guidelines and training of fire departments in the U.S. The physical properties of compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas make it safer to use than most other fuels. This gas is nontoxic and has a limited flammability range. Propane is the third most popular vehicle fuel after gasoline and diesel. It is best suited for engines that operate at low speeds with light throttle response.
