Lecture -- Best Practices for Railroad Trespassing and Crossings

While railroad crossing crashes have declined in recent decades, trespass (pedestrian) deaths have increased exponentially, both nationally and within North Carolina. Participants will learn and understand the impact of noise mitigation in modern rail operations and differentiate between facts and myths associated with railroad safety to prevent unfortunate deaths and injuries of pedestrians on or near railroads. Through case studies and example scenarios, students will learn to recognize a rail related emergency and how best to respond to situations following a little known federal rule instituted in 2015; the USDOT Emergency Notification System (ENS) for rail notifications.  A railroad crossing alpha-numeric address system and toll free telephone number is the most efficient and effective method to communicate with railroads to prevent rail tragedies.
