BART’s mission is to provide safe, reliable and quality transportation services. Safety is the most important element in the performance of our duties. Accountability for safety rests with each employee, supervisor and manager. All are responsible for meeting the safety requirements inherent to their positions. Compliance with the Operations Rules and Procedures is essential to the safe operation of the BART system. ACKNOWLEDGMENT This Revision to the Operations Rules and Procedures (OR&P) would not have been possible without the dedicated BART employees, too numerous to name individually, who served on revision committees, reviewed drafts and made suggestions for improvement.

INCIDENT COMMAND The Incident Command System (ICS) is used to manage emergency incidents and is required by BART’s Emergency Plan. ICS is also required by Federal (National Incident Management System-NIMS) and State (Standardized Emergency Management System-SEMS) regulation. “The use of ICS at an emergency ensures that there is a single person (Incident Commander) who has both the responsibility and authority to direct and coordinate the actions of all personnel at an incident. This, in turn, establishes a clear “Chain of Command” which: minimizes confusion, reduces potential safety hazards due to the lack of coordination, expedites mitigation of the incident, reduces the potential for omissions in the investigative process, and reinstates normal service as soon as practically possible.” Review the OR&P Section III – Emergencies In an Emergency: The OCC (Central) will: • Name the Incident Commander (IC) • Name the Incident • Provide resources at the request of the IC You Must: • Report to an emergency incident location if nearby or dispatched • Contact the OCC, if you are first on the scene • Report to the IC or to your supervisor if present on arrival at the scene • Refer responding personnel to their supervisors (if present) or the IC While working at an emergency, keep your •

supervisor or the IC updated by reporting your progress, problems, and needs


INCIDENT COMMAND The Incident Commander (IC): • Is in charge of the emergency incident and the actions of ALL personnel at the scene • Shall establish an Incident Command Post (ICP) and notify the OCC of it’s location • Should request additional resources, as needed, from the OCC • Must maintain control of the entire emergency scene area (and everyone in it) by: o personal observation o delegating tasks, and o directing and coordinating the activities of personnel and groups at the scene • May pass IC to Fire, Police, or other BART personnel where appropriate o Fire service will normally assume IC in fire, rescue or medical emergencies o BART Police will assume IC at crime scenes • Must brief the new IC if “Command” is transferred • Must become the BART Liaison if Fire or any other outside agency assumes IC • Must notify the OCC of all transfers of IC BART Liaison: • After briefing the new IC, the BART Liaison will remain “attached at the hip” with the IC and provide communication with the OCC for activation and/or deactivation of ventilation, third rail power and to provide BART Central with updates as needed. Additionally, the BART Liaison will make recommendations and call for additional BART resources as needed.
