The LIRR receives a written request from a Fire Department or Rescue Squad requesting this training. At the first session a LIRR training specialist is assigned and will cover the following topics, command and control, how to operate safely around high voltage equipment, isolation procedures, emergency access to the passenger cars, hazardous materials transported via rail and how to contact the LIRR. At the second session, the Suffolk County Fire Academy with the cooperation of the Nassau County Fire Academy provides hands-on training for all Nassau and Suffolk County Emergency responders. Familiarization of the two car mock up at the Nassau County Fire Academy and a review of the LIRR firehouse training precedes several scenarios and hands-on application of skills.
