Emergency Response Team Coordinator

Introductory Information:

This program is designed to provide Emergency Response Team Coordinators with the knowledge required to ensure their ERT is capable of responding to emergencies safely.

Main Topics Covered in this Course Include:

  • Creating a Training Schedule
  • Planning and Preparing for Training
  • Training Records
  • Obtaining Equipment
  • Equipment Readiness
  • Using a Standard Operating Guide

Opening Remarks:

SafeResponse has developed this on-line training program on Emergency Response Planning. This includes personnel who are responsible for coordinating the activities of industrial Emergency Response Teams. This includes responsibilities associated with training equipment and procedures related to emergency response.


Certificates of completion may be printed by the participant once a score of 70% or greater is achieved. The participant may take the quiz as many times as necessary in order to reach the 70% score. A representative from your employer will need to document your participation by signing the certificate.

In addition, each participant must complete the training on an individual basis. If you ask someone else to go through the program for you, you will not learn the information you will need to ensure the health and safety of Emergency Response Team members. This will render your certificate null and void.

Legal Requirements:

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in its standard on industrial fire brigades (29 CFR 1910.156) requires that employers provide fire brigade leaders and training instructors with training and education that is more comprehensive than that provided to the general membership of the fire brigade.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has also adopted a standard on Industrial Fire Brigades (NFPA 600). This standard requires that industrial fire brigade members designated as leaders shall receive training and education commensurate with their response duties. Like OSHA, NFPA also requires that such training must be more comprehensive than that provided to other brigade members.

Getting the Most out of the Program:

  1. Before staring the program, click on each section tab at the top of the introduction page. This will tell you how the course is organized.
  2. This course should take approximately 3 hours to complete. Use this number if you are required to track time spent during training.
  3. At the end of the course, you will have to complete a check for understanding. In order to receive a certificate, you will have to receive a minimum score of 70%. Participants may print their certificates once they achieve 70% or greater. The participant may take the quiz as many times as necessary in order to achieve the 70% score.
  4. Passing the check for understanding will confirm that you have met OSHA and NFPA training requirements for Emergency Response Team Coordinators.
  5. Finally, on-line learning is based on content and learner responsibility. As a learner, you have even more responsibility when taking this program. If you skip a section or fail to review all the material, it could result in an injury to you or a member of the Emergency Response Team. For this reason, we urge you to get as much out of this course as you can.
