NJ TRANSIT Offers First Responder Training

When the time comes, First Responders rise to the occasion, sometimes putting their lives on the line to keep us safe. Fortunately, there are people training and certifying our First Responders.

NJ TRANSITs Rail Training Department provides the training they need to respond to emergency situations. A program was developed to take away the unknowns, deal with hazards and learn how to communicate with NJ TRANSIT personnel.

First Responders also learn about incident priorities, what agencies to contact and how to work within the incident command system to ensure proper communication. The First Responder Training Program is designed for Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Service, Emergency Management, Community Emergency Response and other workers who play a role in an incident.

This course is available to all First Responders in NJ TRANSIT's rail service area at no cost. For more information on the First Responder Training Program or to schedule a class, call Chris Scanlon at (973) 522-3719.
