Emergency Response Guidebook is Now Available (HazMat)

The 2020 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) is now available for download! This book is published every four years as part of a joint effort among Argentina, Canada, Mexico, and the United States. It is intended to be a preliminary guide for first-responders who encounter an accident / spill / leak / release involving dangerous goods (hazardous materials). It is equally valuable, though, for members of the aircraft parts community who might face an accident / spill / leak / release involving dangerous goods in their own facility.

Not sure how to use the Guidebook? You can find instructions within the book, but we also include instruction on how to use the ERG as part of our hazmat class, which is offered twice a year and features discounted class fees for members of ASA (and an extra discount for those who sign up for a 2021 class before the end of 2020).

You can find the English version of the 2020 ERG online, here:
