Firefighting electric vehicle fires...

Austrian volunteer firefighting units secure breathing apparutus first before identifying specific EV brand and model to directly refer to that manufacter emergency response guides. The first responder units priority is to cool the down the battery and quickly get to the 'First Responder Disconnect Point' - to disconnect loop, disable the high voltage system and to shut off the airbags. To do this via the rear disconnect point, Tesla suggests that firefighters open the rear door closest to the charge port, and use a 12-inch circular saw to cut six inches through the label, which acts as a visual indicator for where to cut into the pillar.
The Austrian firefighting unit executed the procedures by the book.
