JJ Keller's Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) will help you satisfy the DOT’s requirement that hazardous materials shipments be accompanied by emergency response information (49 CFR 172.602). Numerically indexed and color-coded, the ERG helps emergency responders find vital information fast. Also use it to aid in emergency preparedness, planning and training – for drivers and non-drivers alike.
