The AskRail® mobile app is a safety tool that provides first responders immediate access to accurate, timely data about what type of hazardous materials a rail car is carrying so they can make an informed decision about how to respond to a rail emergency.
AskRail® is a backup resource if information from the train conductor or train consist is not available. AskRail® was designed to give first responders immediate information about rail cars carrying hazardous materials and be an invaluable tool for helping prepare those on the front line should a rail incident occur.
Couple this with emergency training and response planning, AskRail® augments the flow of information and specifics between freight railroads and the emergency first responders in communities along the nation’s 140,000-mile freight rail network.
