Preparedness Capabilities and Assessments

Railway Security

I am an Emergency Management Student and during a discussion between classmates and myself, we discussed the lack of security to railways in America. The discussion led to conversation about railways within cities, for example, a railway running underneath a conference center and the fact that you could hear and feel vibrations from its passing. Unforuntely, this is a dangerous situation due to the great potential of terrorism in this country. I do not personally know of any protective plans for these systems. We need to look into placing better protective measures to Our Country's rail systems.
