Resources for identifying hazardous substances.
See below for information about the ERG, WISER and the NIOSH Pocket Guide.
Got your ERG? We are waiting to hear any information on the 2020 version of the ERG. The Emergency Response Guidebook is published every four years. When available, the state provides the county with a limited quantity of books. Those books are distributed to fire, law enforcement and EMS organizations based on information we have on record. We will not have excess stock of these books. When available, the books will be distributed based on the information we have on file for your organization. All stations are reminded to keep the information regarding apparatus and officers up to date. The information should be entered through this website.
WISER - Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders. WISER is a system designed to assist emergency responders in hazardous material incidents. WISER provides a wide range of information on hazardous substances. Click on the hyperlink to the main page of WISER and download the appropriate app for your device.
The NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (NPG) informs workers, employers, and occupational health professionals about workplace chemicals and their hazards. The NPG gives general industrial hygiene information for hundreds of chemicals/classes. Click on the hyperlink to the CDC page with more details about the NIOSH Pocket Guide (npg).
The Assistant to the State Fire Marshal program has has been discontinued as of June 30, 2019. Chief officers are reminded that they expected to do the fire incident reporting and request assistance from the PSP Fire Marshal if necessary. As there is no designation of a Fire Marshal in the Pennsylvania Borough Code nor the Second Class Township Code, there will be no "Fire Marshal" option for the titles in the Officers data collection sections.
The Pennsylvania State Police have requested that fire chiefs provide an annual registration of those first response personnel who have vehicles equipped with either BLUE Lights or RED Lights and Sirens to the PSP Station at Frackville. There is also a Authorization Certificate which can be completed and given to the first responder.

During a commercial vehicle accident on roadways, our first responders are at increased risk. In an effort to quickly identify the responsible parties at commercial vehicle incident, we have developed two forms to gather important information about the vehicle and the conditions near the incident. In many cases, we are able to assist in getting prompt response by a clean up firm so our first responders can be released from the scene as soon as possible. Please help us by gathering as much information as possible from the involved commercial vehicles and passing it along to EMA through the 911 Center.
