Emergency Response Assistance Plan (ERAP)

Emergency Planning Support & Response Services

Incidents involving the transportation of dangerous goods, including flammable gases and liquids can be catastrophic, so organizations are required to have stringent emergency planning in place to be able to respond effectively.

Any company that is involved in the transportation of dangerous goods within Canada is required to have an approved Emergency Response Assistance Plan (ERAP) with Transport Canada.*

An Emergency Response Assistance Plan (ERAP) details the action plan in the event of a release or anticipated release of certain dangerous goods while they are in transport. Each plan is specific to the type of dangerous goods (liquid, gas), modes of transport (air, rail, road or marine), means of containment (containers or packaging), and the geographical area in which the dangerous goods will be transported.
