This presentation focuses on an in-depth training program designed for train crews, giving specific actions to take when a critical incident begins, through to when the train actually stops. The program instructs engineers on procedures regarding location of stop and radioing for assistance once an emergency is declared, and it provides crews with the emergency decision making skills to perform in a dangerous environment under pressure and stress.
1. Present an all hazard approach to a life threatening environment on a commuter rail coach car
2. Provide specific instructions on what a train crew can do during the 60 to 90 seconds it takes the train to stop to minimize loss of life
3. Learn how to empower train crews to take charge and employ emergency decision making skills during a life threatening incident on a train
4. Review a program written and designed for on board train crews already proficient in medical emergencies, evacuation, etc.
