Episode 3: Hybrid & New Vehicle Technology

December 29th, 2019

In this episode I talk about what makes a vehicle a hybrid and how to identify them through the manufacturers vehicle badging. I also discuss basic electrical theory, and I debunk a number of myths related to these type of vehicles. During the episode I go over proper power down procedures for the vehicle's electrical systems prior to extrication, patient removal, and submersion in water. Later on in the podcast I talk about other vehicle technologies such as HID lighting, airbags, run flat tires, and alternative fuels. Enjoy!
