Solar Panels and Fire Safety
 

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)/Safety

Under normal circumstances, fire personnel should wear the appropriate PPE at a fire scene, but it is especially important to wear it during a solar PV fire.
However, fire gloves and boots provide limited protection against electric shock. Also, solar modules become slippery when wet, so never stand on them. 

 
Additionally, toxic chemicals are a by-product of a burning solar module and are released during a fire.
So, personnel must don PPE and have self-contained breathing apparatus as another option.
 
Finally, the added weight of a solar PV array to the weight of the responders and their equipment may lead to a roof collapse if the structure’s integrity has been compromised.
