Emergency Responder Training

Through an Assistance for Local Emergency Response Training (ALERT) grant from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, the Short Line Safety Institute now provides no-cost hazardous materials training directly to first responders.

It provides a winning combination of instruction, hands-on training, and interactive experience-based discussions tailored to meet first responders’ needs. Our expert instructors, who have 650+ years of combined experience in hazardous materials transportation safety, will cover:

  • Safety on railroad operating property
  • Safety considerations at the scene of a rail incident
  • Rail cars
  • Placards & Markings
  • Understanding Train Documentation

For those agencies who want to put their learning to the test, SLSI can build upon the training by designing an exercise or drill specific to their location and nearby rail operations.
