Emergency response guidebook : a guidebook for first responders during the initial phase of a dangerous goods/hazardous materials incident( )

in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Primarily a guide to aid first responders in (1) quickly identifying the specific or generic classification of the material(s) involved in the incident, and (2) protecting themselves and the general public during this initial response phase of the incident. The PHMSA website also contains links to an interactive, searchable version of the guidebook as well as a link to errata to the current guidebook and a video on how to use it

2000 emergency response guidebook : a guidebook for first responders during the initial phase of a hazardous materials incident by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guidebook was developed for use by fire fighters, police, and other emergency services personnel who may be the first to arrive at the scene of a transportation incident involving dangerous goods. It is primarily intended to aid first responders in quickly identifying the specific or generic hazards of the material(s) involved and protecting themselves & the public during the initial response phase. The introduction contains background on safety precautions, lists of emergency phone numbers, and hazard identification charts. The first two sections index dangerous goods in numerical order of identification number and in alphabetical order by material name. The third section contains 62 individual guides, each divided into three main sections: description of potential hazards, suggested public safety measures, and emergency response actions. Section 4 contains a table listing toxic materials and recommended safe distances (isolation distances & protective action distances). The final section contains information on protective clothing, fire & spill control, criminal/terrorist use of chemical/biological agents, and a glossary

"The 2008 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG2008) was developed jointly by Transport Canada (TC), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the Secretariat of Transport and Communications of Mexico (SCT) and with the collaboration of CIQUIME (Centro de Información Química para Emergencias) of Argentina, for use by fire fighters, police, and other emergency services personnel who may be the first to arrive at the scene of a transportation incident involving dangerous goods. It is primarily a guide to aid first responders in quickly identifying the specific or generic hazards of the material(s) involved in the incident, and protecting themselves and the general public during this initial response phase of the incident"--Page 2
Step frequency ground penetrating radar characterization and federal evaluation tests by Michael Leon Scott( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A step frequency ground penetrating radar (SF GPR) system was characterized and evaluated to determine whether it can be operated safely in a proposed configuration that may include frequency notching in specific frequency bands. This emission testing was conducted with possible notching configurations turned on and then turned off to allow for both scenarios to be evaluated. Testing work focused on emissions characterization measurements suitable for computer analysis of potential interference with relevant systems. After initial testing was completed, needs for follow-up testing were defined. This follow-up testing was completed, and results are included in this report

Large field test of new stereo detection system for the pedestrian signal phase for the visually impaired by Bo Ling( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In March 2010, a large field test study was conducted on a stereo pedestrian detection system in four cities in four States under the Federal Highway Administration's Small Business Innovative Research program. The objective was to prove that the stereo vision would reliably detect pedestrians in real-world environments under all weather conditions (e.g., sunny, cloudy, foggy, rainy, and snowy) and extreme temperatures (e.g., very high temperatures in the southern part of the country and very low temperature in the northern part of the country) and determine that the system effectively actuates pedestrian calls and locator tones on accessible pedestrian signals (APSs). The study was conducted in Tucson, AZ; Somerville, MA; Portland, ME; and Manchester, NH. The stereo pedestrian detection systems were installed to evaluate their performance in complex real-world pedestrian/traffic environments under all weather conditions and extreme temperatures. A total of 17 systems, consisting of one computer and two cameras per crossing, were installed at 9 geographically disparate test sites. These were installed at both midblock crossings and at intersections. When pedestrians were detected at crosswalk ramps, the system automatically actuated both regular and APS pushbuttons to make the service request on behalf of the pedestrians. System performances were evaluated using images saved in external hard disks. Results from the testing showed that the overall positive detection rate for the automated APS actuation zones in all four cities was close to 98 percent, with the average number of false calls per day less than three. This excellent performance was confirmed through the real operations of systems installed at the test sites. Currently, all of the systems are operational 24 h a day, 7 days a week. Comments from the general public, including the blind and visually impaired community, were all positive. This system provides automated actuation of pushbuttons based on the presence of pedestrians. This provides the protection of pedestrian phases, thereby reducing the possibility of collisions between vehicles and pedestrians, preventing unnecessary fatalities, and automatically extending the walk time for seniors and wheelchair pedestrians without slowing down the traffic flow
