Train accidents have a high probability of fatality or serious injury. Telecommunicators must be able to act quickly to ensure the safety of the caller, bystanders, and responders.
Many trains carry hazardous materials. Telecommunicators should be familiar with the resources available to identify these hazards.
This course will cover basic train terminology, the major railways in the United States, and the different types of train accidents which occur each year. The course will cover calls involving train accidents and resources available for train accidents.
I have over 22 years of experience as a 9-1-1 Telecommunicator/Trainer. I have experience in PSAPs large and small. I currently work part-time in a PSAP to retain my skills and industry knowledge.
