TTCI lands DHS grant for emergency response training program


Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that the Transportation Technology Center Inc. (TTCI) will receive a 2010 national training program grant for training state, local and tribal first responders at the Security and Emergency Response Training Center (SERTC) in Pueblo, Colo.

An Association of American Railroads subsidiary, TTCI is one of seven members of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), which provides emergency response training to public safety response communities. TTCI received a similar federal grant in 2009.

SERTC manages and provides surface transportation response courses for the NDPC. Classroom, lab and training equipment — including full-scale accident/incident scenarios — are available to the NDPC program through the National Center for Emergency Response in Surface Transportation, an element of SERTC responsible for managing consortium programs, according to TTCI.
