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, such as an oil or chemical spill. 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.
