Rail Car Incident Response
This eight-hour awareness-level course is designed to increase the knowledge of first responders in recognizing and characterizing the different types of rail cars, potential leaks, and courses of action to be taken based on initial site assessment. The course will increase participants’ knowledge of safety and hazardous conditions that may exist at the scene, and will allow them to become familiar with safe practices adopted by the railroad industry. This course has been developed by The University of Findlay and is delivered in an instructor-led format.
Upcoming course dates and locations in Illinois as well as registrations can be found at and completed on-line at www.naemse.org, National Association of EMS Educators. Each class has on-line assignments prior to the course, so please register early to not only secure a seat, but to get started with enough advance time to get acquainted with your assigned team and to begin the learning process.
Note: Illinois has specific requirements for Lead Instructors with respect to time, experience, and a recommendation from an EMS System. Please make sure prospective registrants review the attached EMS rules (Section 515.700 EMS Lead Instructor) before signing up to take the class if they are expecting to be certified right after successful completion of the course.
Illinois currently only has a licensure for Lead Instructor I not Lead Instructor II but both are beneficial classes for a Lead Instructor.
