CSX provides emergency planning assistance and training to local fire, police and emergency response personnel in the communities we serve.
CSX hosts a free online training program to educate emergency personnel on how to safely respond to incidents on and around railroad property and equipment.
The online training program offers participants the opportunity to gain an understanding of how railroads operate, including some of the hazards of working around the rails and necessary protocols to keep responders safe.
The web-based program takes less than an hour to complete and is intended to provide important information to public agency personnel in fire and police departments, rescue and emergency medical organizations about basic rail safety precautions, railroad operations, initial-response procedures, types of rail equipment and who to call in an emergency.
Upon completion of the training modules, participants must take and pass the quiz in order to receive a certificate of completion.
