    ERG_cover

    Emergency Response Guidebook Cover

    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 (1) quickly identifying the specific or generic classification of the material(s) involved in an incident, and (2) protecting themselves and the general public during the initial response phase of the incident.

    The ERG is updated every four years to accommodate new products and technology.

    The 2012 ERG is now available for downloading on the PHMSA web site.

    1. The new pdf can be accessed in the right hand menu under "Current ERG (PDF)"
    2. The 2012 data files can be accessed in the right hand menu under "ERG Data Files (XLS)"

    AND NOTE THIS ADDITIONAL INFO:

    And this summer, PHMSA will also release a mobile version of the guide for smartphones that the National Library of Medicine will include in its Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders.

    $28,000 FINE ISSUED FOR FUEL SPILL INTO TACOMA'S BLAIR WATERWAY (Washington State)

    Small Spill. Big fine. Ed

    June 23, 2012 Tacoma Washington State USA

    The State Department of Ecology has fined U.S. Oil more than $28,000 for spilling about 75 gallons (292 litres) of diesel fuel into Tacoma’s Blair Waterway in November 2010.

    The fuel spilled through a drain valve that had been inadvertently left open while the company tested a new 8-inch pipeline at its Tacoma refinery, the department said Friday.

    A U.S. Oil worker spotted the leak, closed the valve and built a soil barrier to prevent more fuel from reaching the waterway, the department said.

    "While we’re pleased U.S. Oil acted swiftly to stop the fuel spill and clean up the oil, the spill should have been prevented in the first place," Ecology spills program manager Dale Jensen said. U.S. Oil spokeswoman Marcia Neilsen said the company takes its environmental responsibilities seriously and is sorry the spill occurred.

    Tanker in Bath crash

    A truck driver sustains serious injuries after his tanker rolls over, spilling thousands of gallons of asphalt sealer onto the highway, himself and his dog.

    The driver of a tanker truck sustained serious injuries in an accident on I-86 near Bath early Monday morning.

    Bath fire officials arrived on scene to the tanker ruptured in multiple spots and thousands of gallons of asphalt sealer spilled onto the highway.

    The driver was ejected from the seat and found covered in the sealer, moaning for help. He was airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, where he was in intensive care. His condition is unknown at this time.

    Bath fire officials say the driver's dog was also found covered in asphalt sealer on scene.

    The dog is expected to be OK after being cleaned up and sent to the Animal Hospital in Hornell. The cause of the rollover is unknown at this time.

    FUEL TANKER DRIVER AVERTS DISASTER AS YOBS THROW TYRE FROM BRIDGE OVER PEAKS PARKWAY (Yorkshire UK)

    June1, 2012 Humberside, Yorkshire USA

    A quick-thinking tanker driver averted a potential disaster after yobs threw a tyre from a Grimsby bridge to the road below.

    It was the action taken by Gary Markham, 43, which he says prevented his 39,000-litre tanker - full of fuel - from crashing and exploding under the railway bridge which runs across Peaks Parkway.

    Four youths deliberately aimed the tyre at the tanker, and today, Humberside Police warned that people could die if items are thrown at vehicles from bridges.

    Humberside Police casualty reduction officer Pc Barry Gardner said: "I have dealt with several incidents of this type over the years, including a snowball (ice ball) that smashed through the windscreen of a car on the motorway, causing the driver to crash - a prank that went wrong clearly.

    "This sort of behaviour is not acceptable. I very much doubt that the culprits on this occasion gave any real thought to the consequences of their actions.

    "A simple stone thrown by a youth could well lead to a car or lorry driver swerving, losing control and crashing into another vehicle, causing serious injury or worse." The officer added: "There have also been incidents recorded when items thrown at vehicles have penetrated the windscreen and killed drivers or passengers.

    "I would urge anyone who even considers doing something like this to think again."

    Gary said he spotted the youths leaning over the bridge at Pasture Street at around 4am on Saturday as he headed south out of town on Peaks Parkway.

    He said: "I had a feeling they were going to do something so I moved the tanker to the middle of the road as there was nothing coming in the opposite direction.

    "The tyre damaged the passenger window."

    TRUCK SPILLS OIL IN STREET (Texas)

    June 89, 2012 Austin Texas USA Firefighters cleaning up oil spill in Austin

    A small tanker truck from a local oil company spilled 50 to 70 gallons of new motor oil over a 50-block area of southbound Lamar Boulevard on Friday afternoon, causing emergency crews to close much of the roadway and creating a traffic nightmare downtown.

    The truck, which belongs to the Avery Oil Co., was carrying oil in 330-gallon totes, one of which had a valve open, officials said.

    The truck spilled oil from 38½ Street to Oltorf Street, said Palmer Buck with the Austin Fire Department.

    Traffic throughout downtown was snarled for several hours as crews put down a clay-based material similar to cat box filler to absorb the oil, Buck said.

    Crews also put booms in Shoal Creek to keep oil from flowing into Lady Bird Lake, he said.

    The company will be charged for all costs, Buck said. Police pulled the truck over near Oltorf Street, Buck said. The driver, who was not identified, was not aware of the leak and is not expected to face charges, he said.

    TEEN KILLED IN GRANGER CRASH WAS HOURS AWAY FROM GRADUATION (Indiana)

    June 3, 2012 Granger Indiana USA

    Wreckage of prime mover

    Wreckage of prime mover

    Police have released the names of those involved in a deadly crash Sunday morning on State Road 23 in Granger. The young man who died is 18-year-old James Reeder - a student from Lawrence, Michigan who was due to graduate Sunday afternoon.

    Around 4:30 a.m. Reeder's pickup truck and a semi collided head-on just south of the Indiana-Michigan state line in Harris Township, spilling fuel on the highway.

    The semi - driven by 43-year-old Troy S. Massey of Coloma, Michigan - burst into flames upon impact. Reeder died at the scene.

    Massey was taken to South Bend's Memorial Hospital with back pain and minor facial injuries.

    The tanker was carrying 8,000 gallons of fuel and was just filled at the Granger fuel depot before the crash. However, the tanker portion of the semi did not catch fire -- meaning an even larger disaster was averted thanks to the efforts of firefighters.

    Lieutenant Matt Blank of the St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department says information gathered at the scene shows the southbound pickup crossed the centre line into the path of the northbound semi.

    Massey ran from his burning cab. It took emergency crews an hour to douse the flames. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management was called to the scene because of the fuel spill.

    MORE THAN 50 HOMES EVACUATED AFTER TANKER CRASHES IN BEDFORD (Virginia)

    May 28, 2012 Montvale, Virginia USA

    More than 50 houses were evacuated Monday night after a tanker truck crashed in the Montvale area.

    Fire officials confirmed the tanker spilled fuel when it overturned on U.S. 460 near Wilkerson Road.

    The crash happened at about 8 p.m. in the S-curves near Montvale Elementary School, according to the Virginia State Police. The tanker blocked both eastbound lanes of U.S. 460, and one westbound lane has been rerouted to handle the eastbound traffic.

    The tanker is still leaking fuel and a hazardous materials team is on the scene working to contain the spill. Goose Creek runs nearby.

    No information was available as of press time regarding the amount of fuel spilled or whether any of it has contaminated the creek.

    Bedford County Fire & Rescue Chief Jack Jones said homes were evacuated as a precaution, due to the strong smell of fumes in the area. Those evacuated are being housed at Montvale Elementary School

    U.S. 460 TANKER SPILL KILLS LYNCHBURG MAN; CLEANUP COULD TAKE WEEKS (Virginia)

    Traffic along a nearly mile-long section of U.S. 460 in Bedford County has been reduced to one lane in both directions — and could remain that way for weeks — following a fatal tanker truck crash near Montvale that spilled thousands of gallons of diesel fuel and gasoline.

    Adam Henry, of Lynchburg, the driver of the truck for Watts Petroleum, died at the scene of the crash after he lost control of the vehicle Monday night, said Sgt. Robert Carpentieri of the Virginia State Police. Henry was not wearing his seatbelt.

    Carpentieri said investigators still are looking into what caused the crash in the S-curves near Montvale Elementary School.

    "He definitely lost control, but what led up to that, I don’t know," Carpentieri said Tuesday.

    About 6,700 gallons of fuel spilled in the crash, which closed 0.7 miles of eastbound U.S. 460 near Virginia 726, or Wilkerson Mill Road.

    Eastbound traffic has been rerouted onto one lane of westbound U.S. 460, with the other lane remaining open to westbound vehicles.

    Jason Bond, spokesman for the Virginia Department of Transportation, said the area has been designated a "long-term work zone" while workers remove soil contaminated by the fuel to prevent the gasoline and diesel from reaching the groundwater. "It could be weeks before it’s reopened," Bond said Tuesday.

    About 15,000 vehicles travel that stretch of U.S. 460 each day, according to the department’s most recent traffic report, he said.

    June 1, 2012 Oviedo Florida USA Car and gasoline tanker crash

    A car crashed into a fuel tanker on State Rod 436 and Aloma Avenue late Friday morning.

    No one was injured in the crash and no fuel leaked onto the road, according to officials.

    The crash forced officials to close the road while another tanker was called to the scene to collect the fuel before the damaged truck could be moved.

    Police say the driver of a Nissan sedan tried to pass the tanker as it made a turn into a Mobil gas station, causing the collision.

    TRUCK STALLS ON TRACKS, STRUCK BY FREIGHT TRAIN IN LAKE CITY (South Carolina)

    June 1, 2012 Lake City, South Carolina USA

    A train crash has multiple roads blocked in Lake City after a fuel tanker got stuck on the tracks and was struck by an oncoming freight train.

    According to Lake City Police Chief Williams, the police and Lake City Fire Department are on scene of the accident. The crash happened around 5:15 a.m. Thursday morning at the intersection of Acline Street and Fairview Street.

    Williams explains, the driver of the 2006 freightliner for T & M Transfer Trucks stalled on the railroad that runs parallel to Acline St. and could not get off the tracks.

    The oncoming freight train was unable to stop and collided with the truck.

    The driver of the truck advised rescue crews on scene the fuel tanker was empty at the time of the accident.

    The train has traffic blocked off at Fairview Street and Graham Road. Police are redirecting traffic in the area, according to Williams. Drivers can use Thomas St. to cross over the railroad tracks until the scene is cleared.

    The engineer and the conductor of the train suffered minor injuries and were both transported to Lake City Hospital. The truck driver walked away from the accident uninjured.

    Florence County Emergency Management are also assisting with the scene at this time.

    RESCUERS RESPOND TO MOCK TRAIN-OIL TANKER CRASH (Malaysia)

    June 23, 2012 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    Fire-fighters, policemen, Kuala Lumpur Hospital paramedics, and KL StarRail Sdn and KL Monorail employees put all their skills to the test in an emergency drill that simulated a crash involving an oil tanker and a train, today.

    About 800 people were involved in the two-hour Ex-AMMOK 2012 mock exercise at the Hang Tuah Monorail station here that caused a traffic detour.

    The simulated accident involved a runaway oil tanker which skidded onto the Ampang LRT rail track after hitting a structure and landed onto a passing train, causing an explosion and a fire purportedly due to leaking fuel.

    A KL Monorail train from Maharajalela station which passed through the station also caught fire.

    The Ex-AMMOK 2012's Emergency Response Plan (ERP) was aimed at testing Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana) employees' preparedness and efficiency in facing any eventualities.

    Rapid KL Kelana Jaya Line chief operating officer Ahmad Nizam Mohamad Amin said the drill was also aimed at testing and evaluating the effectiveness of the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and the ERP in managing an emergency situation.

    "All weaknesses and shortcomings during the drill will be evaluated and improved upon to enhance the ERP," he told reporters after the mock exercise.

    FIVE DEAD AS FIRE RAGES ON LAGOS-IBADAN EXPRESSWAY (Nigeria)

    Tanker on fire and other tankers

    Motorists had another nasty experience yesterday on the ever-busy Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

    Many were trapped in a terrible traffic jam, which followed an all-night fire sparked by a tanker that spilled its 33,000 litres of petrol on the road.

    Five persons were feared dead. Ten vehicles, including three tankers, were burnt in the fire, which was still smoldering in the afternoon. The incident occurred at Danko village near Ogere-Remo.

    The inferno halted traffic on the nation’s foremost highway for more than 10 hours.

    Many people travelling to Ibadan from Lagos aborted their trip.

    Those who died were burnt, according to eyewitnesses. But the police said only one person died.

    Spokesman Muyiwa Adejobi said: "The accident occurred at about 1 am on Thursday. A driver of a tanker fully loaded with Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) was trying to maneouvre his way through two vehicles on the expressway. His tanker fell and the product spilled on the road.

    "In the course of this spill, a fire broke out and the entire area was engulfed by fire. "A casualty was reported. A male whose identity is yet to be ascertained but investigation is on-going."

    But a man who claimed to have witnessed it said the incident was preventable if the road was in a good shape.

    "It is always disheartening to witness how fellow human beings are burnt to death. I have heard the news of accidents on this road but I am still in shock over what I witnessed today," he said. According to him, seven trailers and many cars were burnt.

    OSR REOPENS AFTER GASOLINE TANKER OVERTURNS (Texas)

    June 9, 2012 Brazos County Texas USA

    A busy Brazos Valley highway reopened around 9:40 Saturday evening after a tanker truck carrying gasoline rolled over at OSR near Macey Road in northeast Brazos County.

    Some of the gasoline inside the tanker leaked onto the highway.

    TxDOT told us it would be until at least 8 P.M. before the site would be fully cleaned up and the 18-wheeler towed away.

    Amazingly the driver was not injured in the rollover and was released from the scene.

    A scene of destruction littered OSR at F-M 1940 in Brazos County after a driver ran off the road, rolling over his tanker truck.

    Drivers like Mark Jones of Bryan were waiting for hours to get through.

    He and his wife are headed to their lake house at Camp Creek.

    "Well I was coming and Bryan Fire Department ambulance passed me so I caught up to it and I went ahead and blocked off the road to help the sheriff and DPS and everybody," said Jones.

    The truck's cab was destroyed and gasoline leaked out of the tanker.

    DPS Trooper Kelly Krieg tells us the truck driver was heading east on OSR when the crash happened a little before noon.

    "It just left the roadway for unknown reasons at this point due to it being a heavy truck and a soft shoulder on this road once it left the roadway it was done. It rolled ¾ of a turn to the right and came to a rest where it's at now," said Krieg.

    Crews were working to clean the spilled gas which we're told landed in the nearby grass and isn't close to any water sources.

    "As soon as we can get the rest of the gasoline pumped out of this tanker and then we get the truck overturned and get it out of that ditch then traffic will be reopened on this highway," Trooper Krieg added.

    TWO EAST TEXANS HOSPITALIZED IN TANKER TRUCK ROLLOVER (Texas)

    Wreckage at Texas crude oil tanker crash

    Two East Texas men were hospitalized following an oil tanker crash on Tuesday outside of Corpus Christi.

    The driver overcorrected and ended up rolling his tanker truck on its side around 10 a.m. Tuesday off of an FM road off Highway 281 near the Live Oak County line.

    KIII reports that the Jaws of Life were called to the scene to extricate the driver, who had been trapped inside of the tanker's cab for two hours. A passerby was able to help the passenger out of the cab immediately following the accident.

    The driver, William Pugh, 31, of Mineola, reportedly asked a DPS Trooper on the scene to tell his wife and kids he loved them, thinking he wouldn't survive.

    Pugh was taken to an area hospital; KIII reports he is conscious and his vital signs are stable.

    Passenger 30-year-old Bobby Williams, of Quitman, was hospitalized following the rollover, but has since been released.

    The tanker was carrying crude oil, an extremely flammable and hazardous material.

    TANKER SPILLAGE CLEAN-UP IN KIRKHARLE WILL TAKE WEEKS (UK)

    June 20, 2012 Northumberland UK Site of aviation fuel spillage

    The clean-up of 27,000 litres of aviation fuel spilt in Northumberland is expected to take several weeks, according to the Environment Agency.

    The A696 near Kirkharle was closed for more than 30 hours after a tanker overturned into a ditch on Monday.

    Trenches and booms are in use to stop the fuel reaching the River Wansbeck. Dave Edwardson, from the Environment Agency, said: "With a spillage of such a large quantity of oil we're not going to be able to contain all of the fuel."

    "There will be some impacts off-site," he said. "People in the surrounding areas may see some evidence on the surface of the water courses. They'll certainly notice a smell."

    The Environment Agency said traces of aviation fuel had been found in the River Wansbeck but not a significant amount. They said they would monitor the area and river courses while the pumping operation continued.

    Lynn Charlton, who farms the land that is now being drained, said the road had a "notorious bend" which had been the site of a number of crashes.
