  • January 18, 2023: AWR-147, Rail Car Incident Response.
    Rail Car Incident Response is an eight-hour, awareness-level training program developed to educate emergency responders on freight rail car incidents involving hazardous materials.  Because most freight rail traffic traverses rural areas, it is important that responders, especially those in resource limited areas, understand the dangers and unique hazards these incidents present.  Participants will gain an understanding of potential hazards at a train derailment, the properties of specific chemicals, and various incident control, confinement, and containment mitigation techniques.  Upon completion of this course, participants should be better prepared to recognize and characterize different types of freight rail cars, potential leaks, and courses of action to be taken based on initial assessment without endangering the health and safety of the responders.  Course is free of charge.  To register: https://ruraltraining.org/course/AWR-147/?scheduled=true&id=8734
  • January 31 - February 1, 2023: MGT-346, EOC Operations and Planning for All-Hazards.
