The Emergency Response Guidebook, developed by transportation authorities in Canada, the US, Mexico, and with Argentinian assistance, serves as a crucial tool for first responders like firefighters and police at dangerous goods incidents, primarily on highways or rail lines. It aids in hazard identification and public safety measures but does not cover the physical or chemical properties of dangerous goods nor replace comprehensive training. This guide is most effective when familiarized in advance and does not address all potential incident scenarios.
