The Renewable Fuels Association has received the TRANSCAER National Achievement Award for the eighth year in a row.
In 2019, RFA held 27 ethanol safety seminars in 10 locations, four Train-the-Trainer webinars and an online ethanol safety training initiative, which trained emergency responders on how to properly respond to an ethanol incident. Collectively, these events trained nearly 900 individuals last year.
TRANSCAER stands for Transportation Community Awareness Emergency Response and members include volunteer representatives from the chemical manufacturing, transportation, distribution, hazardous material storage and handling, emergency response and preparedness, and government.
RFA’s Missy Ruff was chosen last year to chair the National TRANSCAER Task Group, the managing body for initiatives undertaken by the organization. For more information on ethanol safety events, visit www.ethanolresponse.com.
