Center for LNG joins TRANSCAER sponsors
The Center for LNG has become the newest sponsor of TRANSCAER®, which provides hazardous materials education and training to first responders.
The center represents the full liquefied natural gas (LNG) value chain, including producers, shippers, terminal operators and developers.
That representation will provide the National TRANSCAER Task Group with "unique insight into the ways LNG is used and transported" in the United States and around the world, TRANSCAER officials said in a press release.
TRANSCAER's education and training helps to prepare first responders for responding to a possible hazardous material transportation incident. The Center for LNG advocates for public policies that advance the use of LNG in the United States and its export internationally.
"We look forward to sharing information and best practices in the LNG industry that will help first responders do their jobs with greater safety," said Charlie Riedl, the center's executive director.
Other national TRANSCAER sponsors include the Association of American Railroads, American Chemistry Council, API, CHEMTREC, Industrial Steel Drum Institute, Renewable Fuels Association, The Chlorine Institute and The Fertilizer Institute.
TRANSCAER stands for Transportation Community Awareness and Emergency Response.
