TRANSCAER and RFA Hosting Free Ethanol Emergency Response Webinars
December 8, 2020
TRANSCAER and the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) are hosting a series of free webinars to help responders prepare for an emergency response involving ethanol. New dates have been added for both the Ethanol Emergency Response course and the Ethanol Emergency Response – Train the Trainer course.
Ethanol Emergency Response Webinar
Due to the pandemic, the RFA is offering the four-hour long Ethanol Emergency Response training in a webinar format. These webinars are instructed by a nationally accredited and professional instructor with an extensive background in emergency management/firefighting/hazardous materials response. The goal of these seminars is for attendees to gain a full ethanol and ethanol-blended fuel emergency response training experience that can be put to use immediately in the field.
The training program covers the following: Ethanol and ethanol-blended fuels, chemical and physical characteristics of ethanol and hydrocarbon fuels, transportation and transfer, storage and dispensing locations, firefighting foam principles, general health and safety considerations, and storage and pre-planning considerations. Certificates of participation will be awarded to all registered attendees once the webinar has been completed.

Ethanol Emergency Response – Train the Trainer Webinar
RFA also offers Ethanol Emergency Response – Train the Trainer webinars, which is a pay-it-forward type of program. A single webinar can train a group of individuals who can then turn around and pass that information forward, equipping entire communities with the knowledge necessary to respond to any potential ethanol-related emergency. The Train the Trainer courses are intended to develop instructors to lead operations level training. The instructors are responders who have an awareness level of hazardous material storage, handing, and emergency response. The webinars are open to all professional individuals above the technical level of training who are interested in learning how to teach ethanol emergency response. Certificates of participation will be awarded to all registered attendees once the webinar has been completed.
