The Rail Safety Training Course for Law Enforcement project builds upon QinetiQ North America’s (QNA) previous experience in developing first responder training. Specifically, in 2015, QNA developed a video sponsored by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Office of Research, Development and Technology titled Locomotive Emergency Response Training (LERT). This 30-minute video educates emergency responders with basic information regarding freight rail operations and locomotives so that they know how to safely deal with emergency situations.
