Alabama is the next location for the ethanol safety seminars hosted by the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) along with support from an Assistance for Local Emergency Response Training (ALERT) grant. Attendees of this free seminar will learn about proper training techniques that emergency responders and hazmat personnel need to effectively respond to an ethanol-related emergency. Certificates of Completion will be handed out to all attendees at the end of the safety seminars.
Two classes on November 8, 2016 will take place in Prattville, Alabama at the Prattville Fire Department. Two additional classes will take place November 10, 2016 in Decatur, Alabama at the Decatur Fire and Rescue Training Center. Both locations will hold classes from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm ET and 5:30 to 10:00 pm ET. Lunch and dinner will be provided.
“The ethanol safety seminars will provide first responders with excellent training and information that can be applied in an environmental emergency,” said Matt Russell, section chief of training for the Alabama Fire College and Personnel Standards Commission. “Preparation is key to any emergency situation and this training will be essential.”
The seminars are free to attend and open to the public. To register, visit www.rfa.traincaster.com.
