  • Electric vehicle charging and safety

    I notice that charging points have been set up in the multi storey carpark at Brixham marina. These have been situated on the first floor. Is this the safest place to situate these? If an electric car catches fire there is no way to extinguish it, it can only be left to burn out and that takes circa eight hours. during this time it is important the the car is and surrounding area is cooled by water. surely it would make sense for electric vehicle parking and charging points are situated on the top floor where there is access for the fire brigade. A car fire is bad enough but an electric car fire could destroy the carpark.
