Flashcard 4 - Hazardous Material Flashcard Set for the CDL


The correct answer is:

The shipping papers list the class number(s) and other important information—which indicate the type and level of danger in an emergency or spill. First responders need this information to properly handle a HazMat emergency.


In an accident, the driver might be injured and unable to communicate with first responders. Or, the driver may be away from the truck at the time of the emergency.
