AMMONIA SAFETY DAYS
Safety Days are currently hosted throughout the US and Canada. Safety Days are free 8-Hour conference style presentations. Safety Days are made possible through generous donations from both national and local sponsors. ASTI works closely with local hosts and sponsors to assure that the content for each Safety Day is designed with the end-user, firefighter, and regulator, in mind.
ONE PLAN RESPONSE
The One Plan is an all-hazards approach to emergency management. The One Plan is an EPA response system that evolved from the collaboration of the National Response Team, and leaders from State and local hazmat response agencies.
ASTI utilizes the One Plan as the framework for operational guides, playbooks, forms, and checklists that can be used by public and private command teams during an emergency event. The One Plan directs the implementation of tactical objectives during pre-emergency planning, high risk operations, and during the four phases of response, Discovery, Initial Response, Sustained Response, and Termination of the emergency event.
