    Such a shame that water is a non renewable resource and evaporates into space when it’s used

      A firetruck typically only has a 500 gallon tank. It's for immediate use when arriving on-scene while a firefighter is connecting to a hydrant.
      On a highway there is no hydrant so an EV fire could take 7 pumper trucks to contain.
      That's for one (1) vehicle.
      A single pileup accident could exhaust all pumpers within the district and still fall short, causing the fire to rage, causing deaths and damage to roadway as well as leave any other emergency without available reaponders.

          What kind of a fricking moronic take is that?
          A fire under a bridge in Atlanta recently shutdown one of the most used freeways.
          They worked 24 hours a day to rebuild it. Even had police escorts for the dump trucks bringing in material.
          Rebuilt in record time of like 14 days (small-ish bridge span).

          I get it.
          You live in some eurotrash city that has zero value or resources and contributes nothing to the world.
          But there are places that affect even your shit life and if they shutdown, you will suffer.
          Is that what you want?

        That's why you use sand. Also the reason for it isn't the battery exactly, it's that the batteries in teslas are encased in a fricking titanium shell at the bottom of the car so normies can't frick with their batteries and get fried. It means you put out the fire on top, and then it just spreads back again.
        The SOP is to put the fire out on the rest of the car, then drag it with something out of the way of anything flammable.

            No, you just stick a siren-equipped dump truck or trailer filled with it at one of the fire stations in the department and only call it out for an EV fire. Just like how most departments have only one technical rescue truck or a handful of hook&ladder trucks or handfuls of water rescue boats. "One station is designated as a specialty station and gets specialty equipment/training" isn't that hard a concept.

            >but what about the TIME as it comes from ACROSS THE CITY
            That's why they have sirens, they have to wait for specialty trucks to arrive already. It's an EV fire, it's not going to spread unless it's on dry grass, and you can fight that while you wait for the guys who can put out the car itself.
            >what about the COST
            Special sand isn't that expensive, nor is a second-hand dump trailer with a bunch of shovels. If it's really that bad, take some out of the yokel PD's MRAP budget. At least this would actually get used.
            >you're just an EV SHILL
            No, just someone who can use his fricking brain. I personally don't like EVs because of their range issues, but that doesn't mean I'm so moronic I can't figure out how to fight a fricking metal fire.

            Also, it's a 2 hour drive (on the freeway, driving 70 mph) from one side of Houston to the other. I would say that amount of time matters.
            You are absolutely clueless about the volatility of lithium. Once that fire is "out" on the freeway, it can reignite itself without warning.

            I could go on and on but you're so dense you wouldn't understand any of it and it's just a waste of my time.

            For one, a city the size of Houston can more than one fricking EV truck. I would have thought that the concept of "Bigger cities that would have more EVs would have more firefighting equipment that can fight their fires" would be obvious, but apparently fricking not.

Do you think Houston stretches from Katy to fricking Beaumont, and that they'd have ONE EV truck for that entire megalopolis? And you call ME moronic?

            EVs catch fire at vastly lower rates than ICE vehicles, therefore, fire departments will be saving money overall with the shift to EV's.

            Normal cars catch fire in major accidents and can be extinguished with simple water in a timely manner.
            Electric vehicles catch fire randomly for any reason and take hours or weeks to extinguish depending on what is used, and will re-ignite randomly over the next month.

            k, but vehicle fires will be far, far less prevalent when everyone is driving EVs, so fire departments will have a lot more time and money to focus on the much rarer EV fires.

            Once americans learn to use the right materials to put out EV fires instead of trying to stop water+lithium reaction with more water, it will get even cheaper.

            Give me firefighting turnout gear, sure. You do know those are rated up to 1600 degrees, right? And you do know house fires can burn as hot as 1100 degrees too and firefighters regularly go into them, right? Lithium fires aren't some kind of superhot new kind of fire that firefighters have never encountered before. They're just a metal fire that requires a special specific material to extinguish them, and that concept isn't new either based on the numerous different metalfire fire extinguishers available.

    Are we not going to talk about the Volkswagen beetle engines that had Magnesium in the block material that couldn't be extinguished if it caught fire? You could pour as much water as you wanted on a blazing beetle, but it wasn't going to put it out. Standard practice during the time was to put a ring of water on the concrete around the burning car and let the thing burn.
    This is probably what should be happening for a Lithium fire, as it seems that you aren't going to have much luck putting one out with water.
