The Ammonia Safety & Training Institute (ASTI) was established in 1987 and incorporated as a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization in 1992. Our vision of training and emergency response planning related to ammonia safety began with the City of Watsonville Fire Department in 1987. After that, it quickly spread through the Central Coast and Central Valley of California. ASTI's influence continued to spread through the U.S., Europe, and Scandinavia due to the connections with the Refrigerating Engineers and Technician Association, International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration, and the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses. ASTI's influence has continued to spread throughout the U.S., Canada, Central and South America, Scandinavia, South Africa, Australia, and the South Pacific.
ASTI exists to strengthen the Tripod relationship between Industry, Government, and Public Safety. We break down silo-management by providing opportunities for interaction and network connections through our Learning Management Systems, Safety Day Performances, and Tabletop Exercises.
Our mission is to eliminate ammonia related accidents and injuries by promoting prevention, mitigation, preparedness (PMP) and the One Plan for emergency response. Our vision is that not a single person be harmed by ammonia products through ignorance or lack of prevention, mitigation, or preparedness.
ASTI is dedicated to making ammonia (NH3) the safest managed hazardous material in the world. We specialize in bringing leaders from industry, government, and public safety (the Tripod) together to improve prevention, preparedness, and emergency response. Our goal is to operationalize the EPA's Integrated Contingency Plan ("One Plan") so that the Tripod Command Team can use a concept of operations (CONOPS) to prevent hazardous events or stop emergency events when they are small.
ASTI is a public charitable non-profit organization dedicated to working with industry, government, and public safety to prevent emergencies or stop them small.
