    • Abstract:
      This report presents a summary and the results of the successful workshop "On Track to Fire and Life Safety in Rail Rapid Transit," held on August 2-4, 1982, at Crystal City, Virginia. Sponsored by the Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) and developed in conjuction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency's National Fire Academy, the workshop represented the initial effort in a program to identify the fire and life safety training needs for rail rapid transit systems and metropolitan fire departments serving the systems. The audience included operational transit systems, systems currently under construction, and systems in the planning and design stage. Personnel from a total of 21 transit systems and 25 fire departments participated in the workshop. The primary objective of this 3-day workshop was to identify the fire and life safety training needs of the transit and fire service community. The workshop provided a forum for the cooperative information exchange on the fire and life safety concerns, and the needs and priorities of the transit and fire service community. The workshop participants worked to identify training needs in 4 areas, namely: prevention, detection, and notification; emergency evacuation; fire suppression and rescue; and emergency planning. Seven specific training needs are identified and recommendations for their implementation are discussed in this report. The appendices in this report provide a List of Workshop Attendees, Workshop Agenda, and Comments on Workshop Sessions. This workshop report also provides conclusions and recommendations regarding the fire and life safety training needs of the transit and fire service community.
