Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG), 2016 Ed.

$9.99

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.

This guidebook is primarily a guide to aid first responders in quickly identifying the specific or generic hazards of the material(s) involved in the incident, and protecting themselves and the general public during the initial response phase of the incident.

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

Available in either spiralbound or softbound formats.
