2012 Emergency Response Guidebook

The Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) is developed jointly by the US Department of Transportation (DOT), Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation of Mexico (SCT). The ERG is intended to be used by firefighters, police, and other emergency services personnel who may be the first to arrive at the scene of a transportation incident involving hazardous material. It is primarily a guide to aid first responders in quickly identifying the specific or generic classification of the material(s) involved in an incident, and to aid in protecting themselves and the general public during the initial response phase of the incident.

ICC Compliance Center will have copies of the ERG 2012 in the next few weeks.
