Riley Fire Department and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) Hazmat Section will be presenting Tactical Considerations of Railcar emergencies. Specialist Stan Capobianco will be focusing on assessing train derailment situations and the planning of a strategy for addressing the incidents as first responders utilizing incident command concepts. Highway incidents, and specific fire suppression strategies for current related derailments will also be discussed, along with working with community partners that include railroad administrators as well as local, state and federal agencies.
State Fire Marshal Jim Greeson Says “This training is timely because of the amount of crude passing through Indiana, though large amounts of crude are transported across Indiana each day without incident, responders need to plan and train so that they are prepared in the event of a derailment or other emergency.
These incidents are bigger than any one department or agency. I encourage communities to build those relationships beforehand, and break down barriers that might make working together more difficult. Don’t wait until the worst happens.”
