August 14, 2019


August 14, 2019 - The Renewable Fuels Association, in partnership with TRANSCAER®, is hosting a free ethanol safety "Train the Trainer" webinar on Tuesday, August 20, for ethanol emergency response teams. The webinar will take place from noon to 2 p.m. ET and is the fourth and final webinar to be funded through a Federal Railroad Administration/TRANSCAER grant. It is designed to train a group of individuals who can then turn around and pass that information forward, equipping entire communities with the knowledge necessary to respond to any potential ethanol-related emergency. Led by national hazardous materials trainer Joel Hendelman, the webinar is open to all professional individuals above the technical level of training who are interested in learning how to teach ethanol emergency response. Registration is limited 100 attendees. Certificates will be awarded to all completing the webinar. For more information or to register, visit
