RFA, TRANSCAER to host ethanol safety webinars next year

By Renewable Fuels Association | December 26, 2018
The Renewable Fuels Association, in partnership with Transportation Community Awareness and Emergency Response (TRANSCAER), will host four ethanol safety webinars in 2019. The first webinar will be  Jan. 15, followed by March 19, July 2, and Aug. 13.

The “Train the Trainer” webinars are funded through a Federal Railroad Administration/TRANSCAER grant. A single webinar can train a group of individuals, who can then pass that information forward, equipping entire communities with the knowledge necessary to respond to any potential ethanol-related emergency.

These webinar courses are intended to develop instructors to lead operations-level training. The webinars, led by national hazardous materials trainer Joel Hendelman, are open to all professional individuals above the technical level of training who are interested in learning how to teach ethanol emergency response. These professional individuals must also have an awareness level of hazardous material storage, handing and emergency response. The webinar courses are intended to develop instructors to lead operations-level training.

All webinars are from 11 a.m. CST to 1 p.m. CST. They are free to attend, but are limited to the first 100 attendees per webinar. Certificates of attendance will be awarded following the completion of the safety seminar.
