This publication provides guidance for the response to a cryogenic liquid release. It is intended to complement the measures that are outlined in the current version of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Emergency Response Guidebook.

This publication is intended for civil services (fire department, police, etc.) and emergency responders. The information in this publication shall only be applied by a subject matter expert in the product, equipment, and the emergency response handling protocols or practices.

These guidelines are intended to protect public safety, safely control the release, and implement the intervention measures. They apply to sustained cryogenic liquid releases, including:
• Plant process release, especially if the source cannot be shut off, and it is of undetermined quantity and duration; and
• Stationary storage tank release.

NOTE—This publication is intended to be used within the incident command system.

This publication does not apply to transportation incidents that result in a cryogenic liquid release.
