PHMSA Requests Input on 2020 Emergency Response Guide
Need DOT (49 CFR) hazmat training for highway shipments? Check out the Hazmat Ground Shipper workshop or online course.
PHMSA wants input from emergency responders with experience using the ERG to respond to hazardous materials transport incidents. PHMSA estimates it will receive about 150 responses.
Published once every four years and known to some as the “little orange book,” the ERG is a critical resource for hazardous materials transporters and emergency responders. The book provides guidance and information to help firefighters, law enforcement, rescue squads, and others respond properly and safely to hazardous materials releases.
What Is the Emergency Response Guide (ERG)?
To date, PHMSA has distributed 14,500,000 free copies of the ERG to emergency service agencies. The ERG is also available for free online and as a free mobile application. PHMSA compiles the ERG in a joint effort with transport authorities in Canada, Mexico, and South America. The 2020 ERG, PHMSA says, will be published in English, Spanish, and French.

The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
This is the best RCRA training I've experienced! I will be visiting Lion training again.

I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!

The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
