AFD Training with CXS Railroad

The Alsip Fire Department hosted a tabletop exercise with the CXS Railroad. This exercise was to test our response to any incidents along the railroad in our village and to bring together all the major players in the event that a real incident happens. Approximately 40 people participated in the exercise including Mayor Ryan, the Fire Dept., the Water Dept., Public Works, Police Dept, EMA, several neighboring fire departments and railroad personnel and contractors. The exercise lasted 4 hours. The tabletop was funded by the CSX Railraod through Ryan Prewitt (our local response rep. from CSX) and presented by Compliance Associates from Cape Coral Florida.
