When will the 2012 Emergency Response Guide (ERC) be available?
The new 2012 Emergency Response Guides will soon be on the way. The original printing date of February 2012 has been slipped. The best estimates now are April 2012, with delivery some time later.
The process for all public safety agencies to receive the new ERGs is as follows:
- Contact your local/city/county Emergency Manager to give them your requirement.
- The Emergency Manager will forward this to the DEM Field Manager for tabulating.
- DEM will make available the ERGs when received from US DOT to the Field Managers to distribute to the local/city/county Emergency Manager.
Remember, the guides are available free of charge to public safety for placement in the vehicles (primary), training (secondary), and public safety personnel (tertiary).
Unfortunately, we don’t always receive our requested amount of ERGs, as it depends on the funds allocated by Congress for the printing cost. We will distribute our allotment as best we can.
