WASHINGTON, Oct. 25, 2017 - The Renewable Fuels Association and several partners have received a $50,000 federal grant to help continue RFA’s ethanol safety training program. The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) was among the partners included in the Assistance for Local Emergency Response Training (ALERT) grant, from the Transportation Department’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration. As part of the grant, RFA will conduct 10 ethanol safety seminars through mid-September 2018. “We are pleased to partner with RFA again through a second ALERT grant,” said John Woulfe, assistant director of programs and technology for IAFC. “RFA’s ethanol safety training program has done a great job of educating emergency personnel on how to effectively respond to hazmat incidents.” Since 2010, the RFA has received a collective $546,000 in state and federal grant funding to help local communities in 38 states train on ethanol emergency response tactics and procedures.
