Intelligent Transportation System Field Operational Test Cross-Cutting Study: Hazardous Material Incident Response
United States. Department of Transportation
Millar, David B.; Belella, Paul
"Hazardous Materials Incident Response Cross-Cutting report summarizes and interprets the results of three Field Operational Tests (FOTs) that are evaluating systems for improving the accuracy and availability of HazMat information provided to emergency response personnel. The FOTs considered in this report are: Tranzit Express Systems, Tranzit Express Systems II and Operation Response. The report findings are organized in the categories of impact, user response, technical lessons learned, institutional challenges and resolutions, and cost to implement. The FOTs from which this report was drawn did not specifically address technical performance issues. The focus was on anecdotal evidence. The tests revealed several institutional challenges in the areas of motor carrier participation, privacy and enforcement, and jurisdictional concerns. This report highlights the successes and challenges that these tests encountered while attempting to develop the technologies appropriate for responding to HazMat incidents."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
