About ERG 2016

Developer Description

PHMSA (U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration)'s 2016 Emergency Response Guidebook provides first responders with a go-to resource to help deal with hazmat accidents during the critical first 30 minutes. The ERG contains an indexed list of dangerous goods and the associated ID number, the general hazards they pose and recommended safety precautions. For example, if emergency responders arrive at the scene of an overturned tractor trailer displaying a DOT hazmat placard, they would use the guide to identify the material associated with the placard and get guidance on how to respond accordingly. The 2016 version of the ERG includes general revisions, reorganized general information pages and the addition of protective distance mapping. Updated every four years, the ERG is available free to public safety agencies in all states and territories through designated state coordinators’ offices. PHMSA has partnered with the National Library of Medicine to provide this free application as well as a version of the ERG in its Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders (WISER) application.

App Reviews

  • It has everything you need

    By Kham11
    This is an awesome app
  • Great for Hazmat InService Training

    By Orisio
    App works great.....don't work without it
  • Great Update and added functionality

    By BAG22
    This update to the 2016 ERG, has all of the features we've been asking for. The added functionality of the map feature is great. Having all of the information on one screen on a tablet device is fantastic. However, we did find two critical mistakes that need to be corrected immediately. First, in the Table of Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances, the Table 3 high wind category is mistakenly labeled as MPG. It should be MPH. Also, under the listing Anhydrous Ammonia, only the Small Spill information is provided for table 3. The Large Spill information for that green section is missing. If you use Ammonia, Anhydrous it is correct. That is all that we have found for mistakes so far.
  • Look Up Truck Placard Codes

    By PBIPhotobug
    This makes it easy to look up the placard numbers you see on tank trucks, etc to see what they are carrying. That way those of you who love to tailgate because you failed grade school science and have no idea why physics says tailgating is a bad practice can see which trucks you REALLY don't want to be too close to. A native iPad version would get 5 stars...
  • No more need for the book

    By Raleighj45
    Love having the app on my phone. Great guide. Easy to locate materials. Would like to see a quick phone number guide on the front page in case of an emergency.
  • Double Purchase

    By Flyendutchman
    This indicates it is compatible with iPhone AND iPad. I initially purchased and expected it to be downloadble for both. Instead I had to pay for iPad version also! This shouldnt require DOUBLE Purchase unless clearly specified!!!! I want to use both and a refund for one!!!
