2012 Emergency Response Guidebook

2008 Emergency Response Guidebook is available for purchase.



The official Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) is a guide for use by transporters, firefighters, police, and other emergency services personnel who may be the first to arrive at the scene of a transportation incident involving a hazardous material.  It is used by first responders in (1) quickly identifying the specific or generic classification of the material(s) involved in the incident, and (2) protecting themselves and the general public during this initial response phase of the incident.  The ERG is updated every three to four years to accommodate new products and technology.

The 2012 ERG can help you satisfy DOT's requirements that hazardous materials shipments be accompanied by emergency response information (49 CFR 172.602).  The DOT Emergency Response Guidebook helps emergency responders find vital information fast.  It is a great aid in emergency preparedness, planning, and training. 

The ERG is developed jointly by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation of Mexico (SCT). For a list of changes, click here.
