Local safety personnel, emergency responders and all others in the Akron, Ohio, area are invited to an ethanol safety training course on their choice of July 20, 21, or 22. The training takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the IAFF Local #330 Union Hall, 161 Massillon Road. This free training is being held by the Renewable Fuels Association and TRANSCAER.
