Resources for First Responders and Emergency
The Maricopa County LEPC serves as the distribution point for the Emergency
Response Guidebook (ERG). The ERG is a guidebook for first responders
during the initial phase of a dangerous goods/hazardous materials incident.
The electronic version of the ERG2012 is available as well as a preview of the 2016 guide at http://www.phmsa.dot.gov/hazmat/outreach-training/erg.
A hazardous materials incident response can be costly to local government,
and financial assistance is available through EPA. The form and additional
information can be obtained from the Arizona Emergency Response Commission
Also, the EPA website provides tools and resources for first responders
and emergency planners to better plan and prepare to chemical emergencies.
