Coinciding with Rail Safety Week, Norfolk Southern (NS) took part in a Operation Awareness and Response first responder training this week in Lafayette, Ind.

NS says it is using the OAR program to train first responders and “ensure the general public is aware of rail safe practices throughout NS’s operational markets.”

Below are photos from the training, provided by NS, including police, fire and EMT personnel at the NS rail yard; trainees boarding a custom-built NS “Safety Train” used as their classroom; and the NS HazMat Team demonstrating emergency response.
