GALLATIN, Tenn. -

First responders to a traffic crash scene need new skills as alternative fuels become more common.    

A training session May 9 in Gallatin will deal with hazards presented by hybrids, biofuels and gaseous fuels. The course is limited to the first 30 people to register. It is presented by the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium and sponsored by Middle Tennessee Clean Fuels and Lincoln College of Technology.      

The training is aimed at firefighters, emergency medical technicians, police officers and others who work crash sites.        

Registration is online at http://middletncleanfuels.org/ and closes Friday.
