The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has released a free mobile app for the 2020 North American Emergency Response Guidebook (NAERG).

What is NAERG?

You may know the ERG as the little orange book that trainers talk about while discussing the requirements for written emergency information with shipments (49 CFR 172.602).  The NAERG actually provides first responders with information to help deal with hazmat transportation incidents. The manual is put together in cooperation with Canada, Mexico, and Argentina and is updated about every 4 years.

ERG2020 Mobile App

The ERG2020 Mobile App offers emergency responders quick access to the pages of the NAERG on their ssmartphoneor tablet. The app may also be used by shippers to print individual ERG pages that can be attached to shipping papers to comply with the written emergency response information requirements. Electronic forms of emergency response information with shipments are not allowed.
