Railroad Response Hazmat Training
 
Emergency Responders and Emergency Managers:
I hope you, your families and departments members are safe and healthy.  Thank you for your efforts to protect your communities.
As part of our nation’s critical infrastructure, BNSF Railway continues to make sure all the goods that you, your family and communities needs are delivered safely.  
As you know, BNSF provides “Railroad Response Hazmat Training” to community responders at no cost.  To ensure your responders and BNSF’s Hazmat Team remain healthy, we have canceled all our instructor-led classes through August 31st. It is likely we will expand the cancelations through the fall.  
Therefore, we have been conducting webinars every Wednesday that will allow community responders to learn how to safely and efficiently respond to railroad hazardous materials incidents at home or at their station.  So far, we trained more than 2,700 first responders through these webinars with almost 200 responders participating in each session.  Feedback from participants have rated the webinars as excellent.  As the result of the feedback we have received from our “Wednesday Hazmat Webinar” we have added additional webinar topics.  Starting on August 19th our scheduled webinar topics will include: 
Railcar Knowledge for First Responders
Locomotive Awareness and Response
Initial Response for First Responders
 
I highly recommend that those planning to participate in these newly added webinars first participate in one of the Railroad Emergency Response/Hazmat Awareness webinars.
These webinars are free, will be approximately 90 minutes, and held at the following times:
 
 
 
To participate, register here
 
In April, the Department of Transportation authorized BNSF to use an electronic hazardous material (hazmat) document instead of paper documents.  We have posted a video on electronic train lists and communication with responders here.
 
Please feel free to forward this message to any of your team members.
 
Finally, if you want to continue to receive information on BNSF’s emergency response training, exercises and changes that can affect emergency responders, please take time to sign up to our communications list here.
