Ethanol Emergency Response Webinars This Week

Cindy Zimmerman

The Renewable Fuels Association is offering two four-hour emergency management webinars this week in partnership with TRANSCAER and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.

The goal of these webinars is for attendees to gain a full ethanol and ethanol-blended fuel emergency response training experience that can be used immediately in the field. The training program will include the following elements: ethanol and ethanol-blended fuels, chemical and physical characteristics of ethanol and hydrocarbon fuels, transportation and transfer, storage and dispensing locations, fire-fighting foam principles, general health and safety considerations, and storage and pre-planning considerations.

The sessions will take place this week from 5 to 9 p.m. CDT Wednesday, Oct. 14, and noon to 4 p.m. CDT Thursday, Oct. 15. Final segments for the year are scheduled for Nov. 5 and 12. Certificates of Participation will be awarded to all registered attendees once the webinar has been completed. Click here for more information and registration.
