Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway recently offered a training experience for emergency responders in Volusia and Palm Beach Counties regarding railway safety associated with various equipment utilised in daily rail operations.
FEC partnered with The Safety Train, an independent organisation that operates a tank car training train equipped with an onboard classroom and tank cars, to enable experts from FEC, other railroads and environmental services companies to provide hands on instruction regarding hazardous materials, transportation equipment, and LNG.
“Our goal is to provide employees, customers and first responders in the communities we serve with the knowledge required to help us be the safest and most reliable railroad in North America. The safety for our employees and communities is our primary mission as we strive to provide timely service to our customers,” explained Fran Chinnici, SVP and Chief Operating Officer at FEC.
