|The 2012 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG2012) 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 Informaciòn
Quìmica 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.
ERG2012 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.
This guidebook will assist responders in making initial decisions upon arriving at the scene of a dangerous goods incident. It should not be considered as a substitute for emergency response training, knowledge or sound judgment. ERG2012 does not address all possible circumstances that may be associated with a dangerous goods incident. It is primarily designed for use at a dangerous goods incident occurring on a highway or railroad. Be mindful that there may be limited value in its application at fixed facility locations.
The book is indexed numerically and colour-coded so that vital information can be found quickly and easily.
