I. Introduction

With Anhydrous Ammonia being a large part of American agricultural, manufacturing, commercial, and transportation industries and incidents occurring in the past across the United States, there is a possibility that at some point a large ammonia incident may occur. TRANSCAER® has created a high-quality training program that will help prevent and or mitigate such an incident for emergency responders in communities where anhydrous ammonia is manufactured, stored, shipped, transported, or used in high volume quantities. All the materials were developed by our team of seasoned experts from across various industries.

There are thousands of nurse tanks in use by individuals with varying levels of training. It’s important to get an up-close-and-personal look at their design and structure. Mike gives us a detailed tour of a typical nurse tank.

It’s one thing to see pictures of a transport, but it’s much more valuable to see one in person. Paul Baute of Grammer Industries walks you through a typical anhydrous ammonia trailer and gives a valuable hands-on tour of its design and features.

VI. Railcars

This module will discuss contacting the railroad in an emergency, railroad resources, scene size up, reading shipping papers, placards for anhydrous ammonia rail shipments, tank cars for transporting anhydrous ammonia including service equipment and markings, and damage assessment.
