Request for best practices at rail incidents!
Have you responded to a train derailment? What about a rail incident with a hazardous materials leak or fire? Did you feel prepared, or overwhelmed? Whether you’ve experienced a large or small scale rail event, we want to hear from you! CSX Transportation has partnered with the IAFC’s HazMat Center to gather planning and operational best practices used during rail incidents. The IAFC is looking for your advice or perspective in what you believe are the top 5 to 10 planning or operational activities that a department can implement to have a successful response and recovery effort during a rail incident.
Please provide the following information to the IAFC point of contact, James Rist at firstname.lastname@example.org – your department name, city and state, indication of what type of incident you responded to, as well as the top 5 to 10 best practices you would recommend. Thank you for your time and helping shape both this best practices effort as well as future IAFC rail planning and training events. Visit the HAZMAT Fusion Center site @ http://www.hazmatfc.com/ALERT
