Armed with skills and knowledge from the responders course, the last two days of the course, managers will learn about the design, development and implementation of a company Transport Emergency Response Plan (TERP) and design, run and evaluate a simulated emergency response exercise (a legal requirement for DG Transport companies).

This part of the course will provide managers with the skills and knowledge to be confident about their companies' ability to meet their dangerous goods legal obligations and their preparedness to respond effectively to emergencies. Managers will complete all assessment activities here at TISC including exercising their TERP's rather than having to complete work based post course assessments.

A qualification in emergency response management is also provided on successful completion.

INVENTOR LOOKING FOR OIL SKIMMER SUPPORT

Former Fisherman Says His Original Portable Invention Has Potential to Be Used To Clean Up Light Spills

Here's a local approach to a problem in Canada. Ed

null

Nanaimo area in Canada

April 19, 2014 Nanaimo Canada

A Nanaimo-based commercial fisherman-turned-inventor is seeking support for a new oil skimmer he says has the potential to change how coastal communities respond to fuel spills. Bob Elliot is currently crowdsourcing funding for the Ace Curtain Skimmer, a portable machine that intended to clean up light oil spills in freshwater, tailing ponds and marina environments.

His aim is to raise approximately $200,000 to launch a pilot project to convince the federal government to incorporate his technology into local fuel spill response. The money would be used to equip certified local teams with the machine as well as cover training for how to use it. The team would act in a similar capacity to a volunteer fire department, he said. However, he has only about $200 so far.

The floating machine includes 20 conveyor belts that are each coated with a petroleum material that attracts and sticks to any light oil product floating on the surface of the water. As the belts turn, they collect the spilled substance and store it safely for collection later.

Elliot has a patent pending for the device and says he got the idea when a friend's boat sank.

The 87-foot boat had 3,000 gallons of diesel in it that was leaking into the water, he said. "They put a boom around it, and they were throwing pads around it, and we wanted to get a skimmer in there. They said 'we don't have anything that take diesel out of the water."

That was four and a half years ago, and Elliot has been working on the design ever since.

Elliot has designed other devices aimed at attacking light spills in the crucial early hours when the substances first enter the water. An online campaign called 'Saving our waters one step at a time' is backing his efforts. The new model, which is currently being tested in a mine in Arizona, would be a quick alternative to a larger oil spill response, which can take hours. It costs about $34,000.

"For instance, if there's an oil spill in Comox, the quickest that the oil response guys can be there is 17 hours," he said. "It's 72 hours to get to Hartley Bay. But if Hartley Bay had its own response people and their own equipment sitting there, it doesn't have to be fancy, it just has to work and they know how to run it."

CANADA TO PHASE OUT TRAIN CARS AFTER CRASH (Canada)

Note carefully the huge increase in rail car numbers in both Canada and the United States: (500 to 160,000 and 10,800 to 400,000) Ed

Damaged Rail Cars at Lac Megantic Quebec Canada

April 24, 2014 Quebec Canada

Canada's transportation minister has announced the phasing out or retro-fitting of substandard tanker cars used to transport flammable liquids, in response to a deadly derailment in Quebec last year.

Minister Lisa Raitt said the "least crash-resistant" DOT 111 tanker cars that have no continuous reinforcement of their bottom shell will be taken out of service within 30 days.

There are about 5000 of them in North America.

Another 65,000 DOT 111 tanker cars that do not meet tougher standards for new models "must be phased out or retrofitted within three years if they are to be used for transportation of crude oil or ethanol," Raitt told a press conference. Many of the upgrades are already underway.

Ongoing discussions with US officials may also result in even further tightening of the standards in the future, Raitt added.

Large swaths of the picturesque town of Lac-Megantic, Quebec, were reduced to rubble after a runaway freight train carrying fuel crashed and derailed in July last year.

The structural integrity of the DOT 111 tank cars involved in the accident that killed 47 people came under scrutiny following the crash, after it emerged the US Department of Transportation had identified safety flaws in the early 1990s.

In January, Canadian and US Transportation Safety Agencies called for stricter rules for moving oil by rail.

Transportation of crude oil by rail has increased dramatically in North America in recent years, driven by the boom in production of oil from unconventional methods such as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and due to a lack of pipeline capacity.

According to rail industry figures cited by the transportation safety agencies, the number of carloads of crude oil shipped by rail in Canada increased from 500 in 2009 to 160,000 last year.

In the United States, the number rose from 10,800 to 400,000 during the same period.

A REPORT ON RAIL SAFETY FOR THE TRANSPORTATION OF CRUDE OIL AND ETHANOL (USA)

A presentation to the United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)

For the information of CROIERG members here is a link a first class presentation to the USA NTSB by Rod Edinger EFO Assistant Chief Chesterfield (Virginia) Fire and EMS Department. Rick Edinger is vice chair of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) Hazardous Material Committee.

NOTE THE STRONG EMPHASIS ON TRAINING. Ed

April 23, 2014 Washington USA

An Extract

In February, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the AAR announced an agreement regarding the transportation of crude oil that included the allocation of $5 million to train emergency responders. Most of this specialized training will be focused on hazardous materials technicians and is to be conducted at the Transportation Technology Centre Inc. in Pueblo, Colorado.

The IAFC believes that it will be helpful to have more responders trained to the technician level. However, it is important to realize that this extra funding will not cover all of the first responders that potentially can be called upon to initially respond to an incident involving crude oil, ethanol, or other flammable liquids.

The IAFC believes that an effective training program for first responders in communities bordering rail lines with crude oil, ethanol and other flammable liquids shipments must utilize a blended approach. This blended approach should contain both web-based and in-person training modalities.

Workers at industrial buildings along Corn Products road are being cautious because of a fuel spill this morning.

Authorities were called out to Coastal Transport when a tanker being moved ruptured. Fire officials say an employee thought the tanker trailer was empty.

Roughly 3,000 gallons of gasoline and diesel spilled out.

Fire Captain James Brown said there was no need to evacuate anyone from the site due to a good wind dispersing the vapours. "We've just advise them not to do any welding our cutting as a precaution."

Crews planned to put down a layer of foam so they could use a vacuum truck to clean up the fuel.

Tanker incident in incident in India

The Kasa police, probing an accident on Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway on March 22 in which a tanker exploded after turning turtle, on Monday questioned the owner of the logistics company that owned the tanker. The accident claimed ten lives and left five persons injured. The tanker belonged to Randhawa Transport Service, based in Vadodara and owned by Ranjit Singh Randhawa.

The tanker was transporting Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), a butane derivative used as a fuel component in fuel for gasoline engines. The MTBE was sold by Reliance Chemicals to a company known as Vinati Organics, said a Reliance spokesperson.

The tanker, carrying over 35,000 litres of the flammable chemical, was on its way to Ratnagiri when the driver lost control over the vehicle near Charoti toll naka in Dahanu.

The driver was posthumously booked for culpable homicide not amounting to murder and the police are probing whether there was any negligence involved in the filling or transport of the chemical.

"We have questioned Randhawa and he will give us details of the client the butane was being transported for. The paperwork of the transaction was destroyed when the tanker exploded. We have asked for copies," said assistant police inspector Ravindra Magar.

April 17, 2014 Portland Oregon USA

The US city of Portland in Oregon is ditching more than 140 million litres (140,000,000 litres) of drinking water after a teenager was caught on camera urinating into a reservoir.

The water - enough to fill nearly 60 Olympic-size swimming pools - will be discarded despite tests finding no evidence of contamination.

The 19-year-old man, seen with two friends carrying skateboards in the early hours Wednesday, was filmed urinating through an iron fence into the reservoir in south-east Portland.

Portland Water Bureau administrator David Shaff said the water will be discarded and replaced with fresh water from the Bull Run water supply.

"Our customers have an expectation that their water is not deliberately contaminated," he said.

TANKER SPILLS THOUSANDS OF LITRES NEAR PRINCETON (Canada)

April 6, 2014 Princeton BC Canada

A fuel tanker plummeted over a 20 meter embankment off Highway 3 Sunday afternoon.

It happened at around 12 p.m. roughly 15 kilometres west of Princeton.

According to the Princeton Volunteer Fire Department the driver of the truck sustained minor injuries but was taken to hospital.

The fuel truck was carrying two tanks, one with what's believed to be diesel the other gasoline. At last word, both those tanks were still leaking fuel.

The fire department had to stand down because it fell outside their jurisdiction. The crash site is in the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen.

The highway was closed for several hours as Ministry of Highways and the regional district assessed situation.

The B.C. Environment Ministry says about 19,000 litres of diesel and gasoline leaked from the tanker as a result of the crash. That's about half the rig's load.

It says no waterways have been impacted by the large spill and that clean-up is under way. The Princeton fire department is on scene to assist in the clean-up

A tanker carrying a load of fuel overturned at the ramp on Highway 111 and I-40 Monday afternoon. Just before 6 p.m., the truck was navigating the on ramp from Highway 111 to I-40 westbound when the truck overturned, landing on its side.

The Cookeville Fire Department was called to the scene and worked with city street crews to create a trench to catch the nearly 2,000 gallons of fuel that leaked from the tank, according to Cookeville Fire Chief Roger Fuqua.

"They were afraid to upright it," Fuqua said. "There were three holes in the tank and we were able to stop one of them. The others were on the bottom side where it had hit the ground."
Fuel that was collected in the trench was then pumped into another tank and hauled from the scene. The scene was contained without any fire starting.

No one was injured in the incident and the driver of the truck claimed he hit a hole while navigating the ramp, causing the tank to overturn, according to Fuqua.
