Basic Details
Name AWR-147 Rail Car Incident Response : ( AWR-147)
Description AWR 147: Rail Car Incident Response is an 8-hour, awareness level course developed to educate rural emergency responders on freight rail car incidents involving hazardous materials. Because most freight rail traffic traverses rural areas, it is important that rural responders, especially those in resource-limited areas, understand the dangers and unique hazards these incidents present. Although safeguards are in place to prevent hazardous materials from causing harm under normal transportation, storage, handling and use, if any of these safeguards are circumvented, there is potential for great harm. Upon completion of this DHS approved course, participants will be better prepared to respond to a freight rail car incident without endangering the health and safety of responders
