CSX Creates Safety Training Train

CSX has created a safety train designed to provide hazardous materials safety training to first responders in its 23-state network.

In a news release, CSX said it trains thousands of first responders every year through classroom training in local firehouses, exercises and table-top drills, as well as web-based and self-study courses.

The safety train features a mobile classroom and technologically advanced equipment and is designed to supplement the railroad’s existing safety training efforts.

CSX said its safety training program also includes working with its employees, customers and contractors.

The goal of the training is to provide first responders with railroad safety tools, hazard identification protocols and transportation techniques to safely respond and protect the public in the event of a rail emergency.
