Press Release
Monday, November 19, 2012

The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) & Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway to co-host a free Ethanol Safety Seminar  on Nov. 29, 2012.

The seminar will be held at the Fire Service Training Center on the northwest campus of Tarrant County College.

This course was developed to give first responders, hazmat teams, and safety personnel an in-depth look at proper training techniques needed when responding to an ethanol-related emergency.  A majority of this training is based on the Complete Training Guide to Ethanol Emergency Response, a training package created by the Ethanol Emergency Response Coalition (EERC) that has been distributed throughout the United States and to several countries worldwide.

“Although rail has long been used to safely transport hazardous materials, we cannot overlook the possibility of responding to potential risks,” said Patrick Brady, Assistant Director Hazardous Materials at BNSF Railway. “These Ethanol Safety Seminars provide local, state and federal emergency response teams with the training and knowledge they need to effectively react to any incident.

”

“Safety within the ethanol industry is of the utmost importance,” said Kristy Moore, RFA Vice President of Technical Services. “Preparation in education must be the first step for first responders, and we strongly encourage all those with responsibilities inside their communities pertaining to the industry to attend this seminar.

”

The Ethanol Safety Seminar focuses on numerous important areas of ethanol safety including an introduction to ethanol and ethanol blended fuels, chemical and physical characteristics of ethanol and hydrocarbon fuels, transportation of ethanol blended fuels, storage and dispensing locations, firefighting foam principles and ethanol, ethanol blended fuel emergencies, and incidents at tank farm and bulk storage locations.
