Regional Rail Response Training Course Resources

The IAFC and ISFSI worked with rail industry experts to develop this Regional Rail Response curriculum. The training is designed to bring local and regional agencies together to better understand the response efforts and roles should a derailment or incident occur and to discuss unified and coordinated response activities to a train derailment scenario, involving crude oil. After this 8-hour session, participants will be better prepared to respond to a rail incident by gaining:

  • An understanding of the response disciplines and associated roles during a response to a rail incident.
  • Knowledge about the industry and rail lines within your region, including the commodities that are transported.
  • An understanding about the need for a coordinated effort when responding to an incident, and how to effectively manage available resources.
  • Experience in a group exercise to reinforce the training concepts around a train derailment scenario.
