From the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) press release:

Air, Rail and Marine Accident Investigation Branches at the Emergency Services Show, 20-21 September

Are you one of the first emergency services on the scene of an air, marine or rail accident? Perhaps you manage a control room for one of the emergency services. If so, you’ll want to visit our stand at the Emergency Services Show. We are the AAIB, MAIB and RAIB – the three independent branches of the Department for Transport that investigate air, marine and rail accidents.

To help prevent similar accidents from happening again, our evidence gathering starts from the point of notification through search and rescue stages to forensic examination of the site. At the Emergency Services Show, our staff will be on hand to tell you everything you need to know so that if you’re at an accident site, you can help preserve evidence that can provide us with vital clues to establish the cause.

Transport accidents pose some serious difficulties to the emergency services. Ballistic recovery systems in small aircraft, confined spaces on ships, 100s of tonnes of dangerous goods inside derailed freight rail wagons. Would you know how to approach evidence preservation in these environments?

Visit us at the Show to learn about all of this and more.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.
