I just bought a 2012 Fusion Hybrid. The dealership told me the headrest could be removed. We can't figure how to do it. I am 5' tall and the headrests create a blind spot big time. The BSM helps but I would love remove them entirely. Anyone have any ideas?

Your owners manual will probably tell you how to remove them.

Texasota had it right, from the 2012 Owners Manual:

Oops, I meant the backseat headrests. There isn't enough headroom to get them out.

Flip the seat back forward and then remove it.

The OP has a 2012 FFH. The seats don't fold down in the 2010-2012 FFH.

Oh yes they do.  I had mine down in my 2010 many times.  The HVB disconnect is behind the right rear seat back.  It's not easy.  The directions are in the emergency responder document for the car.  In a nutshell a long screwdriver is used to push the latch release sideways.  There is one for each seat back.  It was easier to do if the fabric cover for the battery was removed.  Especially the first time until you learned where the latch releases were.  It would have been nice if Ford had painted the latches red instead of leaving them bare metal.
