Regional Coordinators

The purpose of TRANSCAER’s regional approach is to implement TRANSCAER activities on a regional and state level to assist communities as they prepare for possible hazardous material transportation incidents. TRANSCAER accomplishes this goal by establishing regional coordinators and state coordinators. On a volunteer basis, coordinators identify the needs of their respective communities and act as liaisons between the local community and the National TRANSCAER Task Group (NTTG).

Regional Coordinator Responsibilities

  • Assist and mentor state coordinators
  • Attend NTTG Meetings (via conference call or in-person) to provide information on regional and state activities, and guidance on how to grow and improve national and state program initiatives.
  • Promote TRANSCAER events that are being hosted by TRANSCAER Sponsors and Partners within your state or region.
  • Identify TRANSCAER needs and opportunities within your region.
  • Submit training requests to TRANSCAER sponsors or send to the national level.
  • Provide speakers and/or deliver TRANSCAER overview presentation.
  • Maintain a listing of Regional TRANSCAER activities, contacts, resources, and speakers.
  • Maintain accurate contact information on the TRANSCAER website.
  • Commit one to two days a month to implementing TRANSCAER initiatives.

State Coordinators

Each state coordinator volunteers with communities within their state to help prepare them for and respond to a possible hazardous materials transportation incident. State coordinators implement TRANSCAER in their state, share information and learnings with regional coordinators, organize resources, and prioritize TRANSCAER activity locations.
