DOT awards $20 million in hazmat grants
from Fire Chief
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx has announced grants totaling $20.1 million to states, territories and Native American tribes for planning and training to improve the nation's response to hazmat transportation incidents. Since 1993, more than 2.8 million emergency responders across the country have received training assistance using Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness grants. Grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration are funded by annual user fees paid by shippers and carriers of certain hazardous material.
