Emergency Response Guidebook
2008 Training Video Available


The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) has produced a companion training video to enhance the use of
the Emergency Response Guidebook 2008 (ERG2008). The video was developed under a cooperative agreement


with the U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA).
The video explains the contents of the ERG and how to use it as a resource in the event of a hazardous materials
transportation incident. The ERG2008 training video is available for direct viewing from PHMSA's website or
downloadable from the IAFC's Internet television channel, IAFC TV, at ERG2008. Free DVDs are available by
ordering online at PHMSA's website, and navigating the links for “Training Materials and Publications,” then “Free
Publications.” For additional information on the ERG2008 video, contact Nancy White at PHMSA, 202-366-6020
, or Kelly Wolfe at the IAFC, 703-273-9735. Copies of the video will also be available at IAFC's International
Hazardous Materials Response Teams Conference in Hunt Valley, Maryland on May 27-31, 2009. During the
conference, the ERG2008 video will be shown during the National Hazardous Materials Fusion Center Update
Session and copies will be handed out at the session. Additional copies will be available at the Hazmat Fusion
Center exhibit table. For more information about the International Hazardous Materials Response Teams Conference
