General Motors (GM) has set a new bench mark for US automakers and all foreign automaker. General Motors has been very proactive with training First Responders on the 2011 Chevrolet Volt. There is an awareness training program that is visiting major US cities. For those of us who don’t or can’t make it to one of the programs GM has put together a 26 page Emergency Response Guide (ERG). The really cool part of the ERG is pages 16-18. These pages display labels that are located throughout the vehicle just for us! Check it out!

A good friend that I met in EMT class, Eric Leung, who is a Firefighter/EMT in the neighboring city of Novi sent me this picture of the First Responder label on a Volt. General Motors has been offering up drives of Volts at Detroit area suppliers who played key roles in the vehicle development. The label below is mounted on a plastic shield called the sight shield. The sight shield mounts to the GOR which is the Grill Opening Reinforcement. I moonlighted for a company designing and packaging sight shields over 10 years ago. A part of the car that never gets any respect!
