Free CHEMTREC Training Video Offered to Emergency Responders

Emergency responders may find it worthwhile to watch a new, free training video about CHEMTREC (the CHEMical TRansportation Emergency Center), which is a 24-hour emergency resource founded by the chemical industry in 1971.

"We will be successful when every emergency responder knows our number by heart and takes advantage of our services," said Randy Speight, CHEMTREC's managing director. "Our experienced staff is available around the clock to anyone, anywhere who is dealing with an incident involving hazardous materials or dangerous goods." The organization's 24/7/365 emergency call center is staffed by emergency specialists, located in Arlington, Va., and reachable at 1-800-262-8200. CHEMTREC's services include more than 4 million Material Safety Data Sheets; a database of more than 30,000 manufacturers, shippers, carriers, public organizations, and private resources; and what the organization describes as a "state-of-the-art telecommunications system that supports the virtual emergency response team, seamlessly linking on-scene responders with chemical experts, transportation companies, medical experts, and clean-up efforts."

"This free training video is a must-watch for all first responders. CHEMTREC has been and continues to be a tremendous asset to all emergency responders," said Tim Butters, chairman of the International Association of Fire Chiefs' Hazardous Materials Committee and assistant chief of the Fairfax, Va., Fire Department.
