(PHMSA) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration
Our mission is to protect people and the environment by advancing the safe transportation of energy and other hazardous materials that are essential to our daily lives.
OUR SAFETY GOALS contribute directly to helping achieve the Secretary’s goal—to improve public health and safety by reducing transportation-related deaths and injuries. We work to protect people wherever they might be.
PHMSA's 2016 Emergency Response Guidebook provides first responders with a go-to manual to help deal with hazmat transportation accidents during the critical first 30 minutes.
