“Safety during an incident involving dangerous goods is our utmost priority. That is why we are continuously working to improve safety for Canadians and first responders who play a critical role in an emergency. This revised guidebook is another step to ensure that first responders are well equipped to protect Canadians during the initial response phase.”
The Honourable Marc Garneau
Minister of Transport
