Transportation disasters can be caused by mechanical failure, human error, natural causes or terrorist attack. The devastation they cause is unique and often catastrophic. Transportation officials, police, fire and emergency personnel need to be prepared and know how to react if and when the worst happens.

Unlike books that focus on the technical aspects of transportation disasters or the experiences of victims, this book presents a people-oriented approach that explains what happens in a disaster and how the responding agencies should function.

The Handbook presents information that applies to all types of disasters, covers the unique aspects of transportation disasters, and deals with specific transportation issues. It provides a review of all of the necessary elements involved in disaster response with examples from actual incidents and useful advice.

The book will be an essential guide for everyone involved in the response to disaster, covering everything from assessment and classification of the incident and handling of the scene and victims, to dealing with the media, planning business recovery and addressing the post-traumatic stress that often affects the personnel involved
