NJ Transit develops emergency management plan

Posted on June 12, 2014

NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey Transit developed a Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan detailing how the agency will respond to storms, terrorist acts, earthquakes and other major events that threaten customers and assets, reported The Record.

There are seven plans in all, including separate documents for each mode of transportation — bus, light rail and commuter rail — as well as plans for the NJ Transit Police Department and disability services and a corporate plan.

NJ Transit put the plans together following public criticism after it stored rail equipment in low-lying yards during Superstorm Sandy — a decision that resulted in $120 million in damage. For the full story, click here.
