DOT Placards gives you access to three sections of the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG 2012) including the Yellow (Substances by ID), Orange (Guides), and Table 1 of the Green (Isolation Distances) sections of the ERG.
The Guides offer linked emergency response phone numbers. Tap the appropriate number to bring up your phone's dialer.
You can search by placard number, substance name, or for a specific guide. One tap takes you to the orange guide with details on toxicity, flammability, and spill procedures.
This app is built from the same data published in the official PHMSA ERG 2012 app. This app adds the ability to dial numbers with a touch.
Ad free, and requiring no special permissions. Please contact the developer for site licensing options.
Upgrade to DOT Placards Plus for additional features:

-Map specific placard numbers to locations.
-If you like the free app, please consider supporting the developers by purchasing DOT Placards Plus.
