HazMat by Rail

The HazMat by Rail program provides first responder training and assists with community planning efforts to respond to emergencies involving hazardous material releases that occur on rail lines. Through the work of county based local emergency planning committees (LEPC's), in partnership with the rail industry and Oregon's Regional HazMat Team Program, the HazMat by Rail program funds preparedness efforts such as tabletop exercises, rail specific hazmat training, commodity flow studies, and the purchase of rail response equipment.
