Emergency Response Guidebook 2020

From: $8.75

The Emergency Response Guidebook was developed jointly by Transport Canada (TC), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the Secretariat of Transport and Communications of Mexico (SCT) and with the collaboration of CIQUIME (Centro de Información Química para Emergencias) of Argentina, for use by fire fighters, police, and other emergency services personnel who may be the first to arrive at the scene of a transportation incident involving dangerous goods.

The guidebook will assist responders in making initial decisions upon arriving at the scene of a dangerous goods incident.

Available in spiralbound, softbound and pocket-size format.
