Safety Bulletin - Lithium Ion Batteries
NYC e-bike related fires have killed nine people and injured 164 others in the last two years, the NY Post reported this week. Drones, smartphones, and electric vehicles are all powered by lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are susceptible to 'thermal runaways', a chain reaction that quickly releases large amounts of energy along with toxic gases. Use copious amounts of water to extinguish these fires and ensure quick searches of affected areas.
