DOT/FRA RIN: 2130-AC33 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Revisions to Passenger Train Emergency Preparedness Regulations (Part 239) 
Abstract: The rulemaking would propose a series of unrelated revisions to 49 CFR part 239. These proposed revisions would: (1) create a definition for emergency response communication centers to ensure that railroad personnel who coordinate first responders receive control center employee training provided by part 239; (2) require railroads develop procedures to promote the safe evacuation of disabled passengers; (3) make the FRA emergency preparedness plan approval process more efficient; and (4) create new testing and inspection requirements for railroads covered by part 239. These revisions are based on a recommendation made to FRA by the Railroad Safety Advisory Committee.
