WASHINGTON, May 2014 — Today, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) is unveiling an updated version of “The Training Guide to Ethanol Emergency Response.” This powerful resource was first developed in 2006 to give first responders, hazmat teams, and safety personnel in-depth information on proper training techniques to respond to an ethanol-related emergency.

The training guide has been used at Ethanol Safety Seminars and distributed to more than 10,000 responders worldwide. RFA and TRANSCAER® began offering Ethanol Safety Seminars in 2010 and have since held more than 100 Safety Seminars in 21 states. RFA is a national sponsor of TRANSCAER®, a national outreach effort focused on helping communities prepare and respond to possible incidents involving the transportation of hazardous materials.

Kristy Moore, the Renewable Fuels Association’s vice president of technical services and a recent recipient of the TRANSCAER® Individual Achievement Award, stated, “RFA’s commitment to safety is unwavering. There is no reason that a first responder should have to go into a potentially dangerous scenario unprepared. That is why the Renewable Fuels Association took the initiative by first creating, and now updating, the ‘Training Guide to Ethanol Emergency Response.’”

The updated “Training Guide to Ethanol Emergency Response” continues to include:
