Protecting Our Railways
One way or another, we are all working to assure our security. Rail freight and passenger transportation systems are working around the clock to protect citizens, infrastructure, and services. Sabotage detection and prevention is now a critical arena for research and development.
Key infrastructure and equipment control centers, passenger stations, rail vehicles, track, yards, bridges, and tunnels are being hardened against potential terrorist threats. Methods for analysis, prevention, detection, and response to terrorism in the rail sector are rapidly evolving. TTCI, the leader in railroad technology, is responding, by offering methods to North American railways for keeping people safe.
It's Our Stock and Trade
We are involved with our nation's transit, intercity rail passenger, and freight rail systems and their providers. Destructive and nondestructive tests of new technology are routinely planned and performed. With an experienced staff of engineering and technical experts, and a 52-square-mile isolated and secure facility, TTCI can design and carry out assessments of new safety, security and emergency response technology, simulating virtually any type of situation for your level of protection.
TTCI provides high quality, impartial assessment and validation of critical systems, equipment, and processes in the railroad environment.
Full-scale, hands-on training for emergency responders (Hazmat) has been a specialty of TTCI's since 1985. Our experience in rail equipment testing and our close relationship with the freight and passenger rail industries are fundamental assets to the mission of emergency preparedness.
Over 40,000 students from the rail, chemical, and public emergency response industries have taken their training at TTCI's Security and Emergency Response Training Center. More than 80 railcars, intermodal, and highway transportation vehicles and containers are used to provide highly realistic training scenarios. New emergency response technologies and procedures are routinely tested and evaluated by the staff and students at SERTC.
Customized training programs are provided to the chemical industry, public and private emergency response teams, government agencies, and military to counter terrorism in the rail environment. SERTC's staff of experienced trainers is also supplemented with TTCI's Bureau of Explosives inspectors, internationally recognized experts in hazardous materials transportation.
