This workshop is designed to equip transit employees who are responsible for developing or updating emergency management plans with the skills they need to do so effectively. Participants will learn what elements to include in a plan, how emergency management ties into the activities that their agency and employees already perform, and useful strategies for developing, implementing, and updating their plans.
This course will provide participants with the skills needed to develop and implement an effective emergency management plan for their transit agencies.
Following completion of the training, participants will be able to:
- Prepare an effective emergency management plan for their transit agencies
