You might imagine after serving as CHEMTREC®’s Director of Outreach & Special Programs for the past six years and engaging in hundreds of hazardous materials conferences from Sacramento, CA to Plymouth, MA, I have heard just about anything and everything. However, after meeting thousands of responders from coast to coast, the one comment that still seems to resonate the loudest and the one comment that best sums up CHEMTREC®’s value for the response community is without question the one that was shared with me during the FDIC Firefighting Training Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. During this fire conference and exposition, a seasoned Midwestern Hazmat Technician casually approached the joint CHEMTREC®/TRANSCAER® booth, reached his hand out to secure his coveted traditional yellow CHEMTREC® key tag and shared: “CHEMTREC® has saved my bacon more than once!”
For the past four decades, CHEMTREC®, which is a service of the American Chemistry Council, has been “saving lots of bacon” as the definitive information resource and solutions provider for hazardous materials and dangerous goods response. “For over 42 years – 24 hours a day – every day, CHEMTREC has provided free, timely and crucial information to responders having to deal with hazardous materials incidents,” said Randy Speight, CHEMTREC’s managing director.
CHEMTREC®’s connection to industry links to the largest network of chemical and hazardous material subject matter experts in the world, including chemical and response specialists, public emergency services and private contractors.
CHEMTREC® offers a broad range of critical resources that can help emergency responders mitigate incidents involving hazardous materials, such as:
By having an on-going commitment to continue ensuring that all responders know and understand the value of including the CHEMTREC® into community response planning, three newly refreshed CHEMTREC® videos for Emergency Responders are now available on-line.

All three of these videos are also available on one FREE DVD. If you are interested in receiving a copy of this DVD, send your request along with your proper shipping information to dlepik@CHEMTREC.com.
“CHEMTREC’s vision is to continue to be recognized by emergency responders, industry, government, and others as the world’s foremost emergency call center for information on hazardous materials and dangerous goods,” stated Speight. “CHEMTREC® will be successful when every single emergency responder knows CHEMTREC®’s telephone number by heart and takes advantages of the resources we have to offer.”
