For the third consecutive year, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has been presented the TRANSCAER National Achievement Award for dedication to TRANSCAER’s safety goals and continuing education of first responders across the U.S.

TRANSCAER, short for Transportation Community Awareness and Emergency Response, is a national outreach effort focused on community preparation for potential hazardous materials accidents.

Kristy Moore, RFA’s VP of technical services, accepted the award on behalf of the RFA at the 27th Annual AAR/BOE Hazmat Seminar in Addison, Texas.

“The RFA always has and always will put safety front and center. Preparation is the key to effective emergency response,” said Moore. “The RFA works hard to ensure these selfless men and women have the most up-to-date information to handle any hazmat scenario they encounter.”

The RFA recently released an updated version of The Training Guide to Ethanol Emergency Response. The training guide was first developed in 2006 to give information to first responders, safety personnel, and HazMat teams about how to properly respond to an ethanol-related emergency. It has been distributed to more than 10,000 first responders and was converted into an Ethanol Safety Seminar. In 2010, RFA partnered with TRANSCAER® to conduct more than 100 Ethanol Safety Seminars in 21 states. Additional safety seminars will be announced in June, 2014.
