PPA Partnering With FMCSA & PSP For Mock HAZMAT Vehicle Inspection Demonstrations

The PPA is excited to partner with FMCSA and Pennsylvania State Police to offer a new educational opportunity to our membership.

This concept will combine both classroom review and mock roadside inspections to assist HazMat transporters in better understanding compliance requirements.
