New unused 2016 Emergency Reponse Guidebook. 
This is a bound paperback, not the spiral bound version.
It has color-coded sections, and 396 pages.


The release of the newly revised 2016 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG), the country’s most widely used hazardous materials reference, has been anticipated for months by thousands of fire departments across the U.S. and Canada. As noted in a bold black box on the revised front and back covers, the ERG is a guidebook intended for use by first responders during the initial phase of a transportation incident involving dangerous goods/hazardous materials. The new ERG2016 is posted online at: http://phmsa.dot.gov/hazmat/outreach-training/erg.       

Updated every 4 years as a collaborative effort of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), Transport Canada, and Mexico’s Secretariat of Transport and Communications, about 14.5 million copies of previous ERGs have been distributed. This year, more than 1.5 million free copies of the guidebook will be distributed to firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and law enforcement officers across the nation by designated state emergency management coordinators’ offices.

The revised ERG2016 includes general updates to the ERG2012, expanded sections and hundreds of technical changes, but no major revisions. The guidebook retains its strongest asset--the use of vital, nontechnical, easy-to-follow information in a brief, practical form.

The ERG2016 contains features introduced in previous ERGs, such as:

Recommended distances are in metric and English units.
The term “dangerous goods"" is synonymous with “hazardous materials.”
The term “toxic” is synonymous with “poison” and “poisonous.”
Two-page orange-border guide on what to do.
The suffix “P” is added to guide numbers to indicate a polymerization hazard.
Each guide shows the broad types of materials covered.
The term “protective action distance,” along with an explanation of “shelter in place” replaces “evacuation distance.”
“Table 1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances” pages are bordered in green for quick access.
Simple, easy-to-understand advice.
