Project Description: To further the development of Advanced Training Technology products for the health and safety training of railroad workers, first responders, firefighters, police officers, emergency medical personnel, hazmat responders, and awareness in the public sector, MetaMedia, in association with the Rail Workers Hazardous Materials Training Program, developed the Graniteville training curriculum for use by rail workers and first responders in dealing with incidents involving train car derailments and the subsequent release of deadly hazardous materials.   The goal of this training program was to improve the readiness of railroad workers and first responders to safely handle emergency incidents involving deadly chemical releases and eliminate or reduce the loss of life.
