Prepared by the FTA's Office of Safety and Security, the “Response and Recovery for Declared Emergencies and Disasters: A Resource Document for Transit Agencies” is a new FTA resource document for transit agencies and other industry stakeholders.

It addresses response and recovery actions that transit agencies can take, including securing funding and reimbursement for restoring services following a declared emergency or disaster. It is written specifically for transit agencies that are either affected by a declared emergency or disaster or that offer services to an affected community or region. It applies to all modes of transit and to all types of declared emergencies and disasters.

This new resource document replaces the initial 2006 version titled “Disaster Response & Recovery Manual.” It will be integrated into FTA’s emergency management training curriculum and also presented through upcoming webinars.

The resource document is available at FTA’s website:
