The Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG2004) is used by emergency responders worldwide and was developed jointly by the US Department of Transportation, Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation of Mexico (SCT) for use by firefighters, police, and other emergency services personnel who may be the first to arrive at the scene of a transportation incident involving a hazardous material. It is primarily a guide to aid first responders in:

The Emergency Response Guide is updated every three years to accommodate new products and technology.
