An Emerging Response Issue - Driven by the Growth EV Charging Stations


The rising popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) worldwide and in America stimulates demand for charging infrastructure to support the growing EV fleet.

As consumers – including faculty, staff and students – transition to electric mobility, the need for accessible and reliable charging stations escalates. The result has been an influx of charging stations being built throughout the country and on campuses nationwide. However, are fire departments and emergency personnel ready for the challenges these bring, specifically regarding response to a fire? Knox is finding increased interest in its remote power shut-off box, which allows first responders to shut down the power going to an EV charging station remotely, quickly, safely, and securely.

Find out more about this solution in the upcoming Campus Coffee Break.
