    Summary

    The Assistance for Local Emergency Response Training (ALERT) Grant focuses on response activities for the transportation of crude oil, ethanol, and other flammable liquids by rail.  Hazardous material training for volunteer or remote emergency responders has been identified as a top priority by PHMSA in FY 2017.

    Successful projects will: 
    • Establish a curriculum that complies with existing regulations and the National Fire Protection Association standards for competence of responders to accidents and incidents involving hazardous materials. The curriculum should focus on response activities for the transportation of crude oil, ethanol and other flammable liquids by rail.
    • Provide a comprehensive needs assessment to identify locations in which volunteer or remote emergency responders are in critical need of hazardous materials training for response activities to the transportation of crude oil, ethanol and other flammable liquids by rail.
    • Effectively deliver an established curriculum to remote or volunteer emergency responders in order to address the identified needs. 
    Funds granted under this subsection must only be used to conduct training to volunteer or remote emergency responders for response activities to the transportation of crude oil, ethanol and other flammable liquids by rail. The training should be conducted as either: (1) web-based hazardous materials training; or (2) direct hazardous materials training that can be made available in an electronic format.
