In addition, design professionals can specify all of the wall assemblies generated by this app which have been verified to pass NFPA 285, and a burn test often required by building code! This app can be used to assemble over 700 possible NFPA 285 tested wall assemblies incorporating CCW R2+ high-R, continuous insulation and CCW’s fully-adhered, high-performance air barrier membranes. The app provides quick, easy guidance for selection of CCW products and wall component options. Finally, the app allows the user to easily capture and share information by generating a print-out or digital image of the user-built wall assembly.

Powerful search capabilities will help you quickly find information by matching just part of the UN/NA number or material name. Cargo Decoder also supports Voice Search to make searches even faster.
Protective distance information,toxic inhalation hazards, and ERG2012 reference pages are just a touch away for emergency responders and HazMat personnel. A simple swipe quickly moves you to the information you need.
Cargo Decoder is my way to give back to the first responders who are always there for us. Cargo Decoder for Android will always be free and will never contain ads. Cargo Decoder uses no network bandwidth so information will always be available even if the cell network is not.
Cargo Decoder runs on just about every device running Android version 2.2 and later.
Cargo Decoder now supports sharing of material details. Select a material and touch the Share icon. Create a notebook of materials found using Evernote (Evernote can add GPS information too). Share information to others via email or text messaging. Configure the information about the material you want to share in Settings. Important: Sharing with Facebook does not work even though Facebook adds itself to the sharing list. Facebook says the behavior is "by design"(https://developers.facebook.com/bugs/332619626816423)
If you like Cargo Decoder, please consider supporting it by purchasing the Cargo Decoder Plus Upgrade Key. Installing the Cargo Decoder Plus Upgrade Key unlocks special features added to say “Thank you!” to our supporters.

We live in very uncertain times. One only needs to turn their thoughts to 9-11 to witness just how uncertain the world has become.
Not only are we facing disaster on a global level, individually thousands of us experience our own forms of disaster every day. Fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and accidents remind us just how vulnerable we really are.
What would you do if basic services--water, gas, electricity or telephones--were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away.
Are you prepared to administer first aid? Do you have sufficient food, water and clothing to survive for several days if necessary? What is your Disaster Preparedness Plan? Do you even have one?
Answers to these questions and much more are outlined for you in precise detail in the Disaster Preparedness Kit. Learn about:
* The Four Steps To Safety
* Your Disaster Preparedness Kit
* Children and Disasters
* Special Needs For Seniors and People With Disabilities
* Consideration For Your Pets
The Disaster Preparedness Kit is provided to you absolutely FREE. Give it away to your friends, family and neighbors. Display it on your website.
The information contained in this booklet can be life saving. Spread it far and wide. The only caveat is that you may not sell it. Under no circumstances is this booklet to be sold.
It is our sincere wish that this booklet provides you with a better understanding of how important it is to be prepared before a disaster strikes.

The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the 9/11 Commission), has recognized NFPA 1600: Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs as our National Preparedness Standard®. Widely used by public, not-for-profit, nongovernmental, and private entities on a local, regional, national, international and global basis, NFPA 1600 has been adopted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a voluntary consensus standard for emergency preparedness. Now you can access NFPA 1600 requirements in the palm of your hand!

The app contains the complete revision and reorganization of the 2010 NFPA 1600, including major changes to the technical requirements and definitions.
