DOT Releases Response Guidebook - 6/7/2012
The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) released the 2012 version of its Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG), providing first responders with a newly revised go-to manual to help deal with hazmat accidents during the critical first 30 minutes.
PHMSA will distribute more than two million copies of the guidebook to firefighters, emergency medical technicians and law enforcement officers across the nation who will use it to identify specific risks associated with compromised hazmat items, measures they should take to protect themselves and procedures for containing the incident as quickly and safely as possible.
Print copies of ERG2012 are available for sale to the general public through the U.S. Government Printing Office Bookstore at http://bookstore.gpo.gov.
