What's new in this version (3.0.1):
* Updated contents from the newly published ERG2012.
* User may now choose from one of three font sizes.
* Added the missing Guide 111.
* Improved the formatting and readability of the guides.
* Fixed an outdated reference to the ERG2008 in message text.
This app contains a searchable subset of the ERG2012. It gives you fast access to the Yellow (Substances by ID) and Orange (Guides) sections, with protective distances (from Table 1) where applicable.
Enter the four digit number from the DOT placard off the side of a tanker truck or railroad car to find out what material is stored inside. From there, one click will take you to the page in the Department of Transportation Emergency Response Guidebook 2012 (ERG 2012) that gives you details on toxicity, flammability, and what to do in case of a spill.
Alternatively, you can search for a substance by name or enter the Guide Number directly and get straight to the same emergency response instructions.
Sure, the ERG2012 is available on paper and as a PDF. But don't you want to have it right at hand, right on your phone, when you need to look up something FAST?
Ad free, no special permissions required.
Do you or your colleagues have non-Android mobile devices? An expanded Kindle ebook version of this app is now available from the Amazon store. It includes a similar quick-lookup capability but also all the content of the paper book. When combined with one of the free Kindle Reading apps, it makes this material available on just about any mobile device you might have. Go to Amazon and search for 'ERG 2012: Quick Lookup'.

Needs the ability to total hazard class weights, give placarding/segregational requirements, RQ'ing.
Very easy to use.
Just great for us firemen. Thanks.
Great app so far as I'm a trucker. Hope you keep the info accurate
Excellent for emergency responders! Next update try to incorporate the tables in the back of the ERG. That would make it 5 stars.
