Rail Incidents

A major rail line runs east to west through the Emory Druid Hills Campus and alongside the Clairmont Campus. Keep in mind that many different types of items and substances are transported by rail. Some substances may be flammable or
hazardous to humans when released into the environment.

In the event of a rail disaster (such as a train car derailment) remain at least five hundred feet from the area of the incident.

Due to the complex nature of materials traveling on trains, additional information will be made available, and specific directions will be shared through the Emory Emergency Notification System. Such directions may include Shelter in Place or Evacuation.
