RFA just completed the newly updated 2017 version of the Training Guide to Ethanol Emergency Response. The program is TRANSCAER® branded and part of the TRANSCAER© National Training Tour. The classroom portion is both available on DVD and downloadable online at, which is a “one-stop shop” of ethanol safety and emergency information.

The ethanol safety program consists of eight modules and each has a video presentation, PowerPoint presentations embedded with instructor notes, instructor manual and a participant guide. The training modules cover: an introduction to ethanol; ethanol and ethanol-blended fuels; chemical and physical characteristics of ethanol and hydrocarbon fuels; transportation and transfer; storage and dispensing locations; firefighting foam principles; general health and safety considerations; and storage and pre-planning considerations.

Additionally, there are two videos that accompany the training modules. The first is the “Emergency Response Considerations” video, used in conjunction with the training modules. The next video is “Responding to Ethanol Incidents,” a 20-minute video that provides the information first responders, and firefighters in particular, will need if they are called to an ethanol incident.

In addition to updated content, the Training Guide to Ethanol Emergency Response now includes a Spanish version of the 8 modules PowerPoint, instructor manuals and participant guides. It also includes a new Rail Tank Car 101 walk-around video and PowerPoint presentation, as well as customizable posters, brochures and a press release template.

The DVD Extra’s folder also includes: the 2016 U.S. DOT ERG, DOT Chart 15; Association of American Railroads (AAR) Loading and Unloading video; 2017 Field Guide for Tank Cars; AAR Pamphlet 34; DOT Cargo Tank Motor Vehicle Loading/ Unloading Operations: Recommended Best Practices Guide; CTRMC Trailer Climbing Training PowerPoint; RFA Fuel Ethanol: Guideline for Release Prevention & Impact Mitigation,; RFA Guidelines for Hinged and Bolted Manway Assembly; RFA How to Properly Close a Tank Car Manway poster and brochure; and TRANSCAER ® and CHEMTREC ® information.
