DEVELOPMENT PROCESSTo ensure SSEP Program development, [NAME OF TRANSIT AGENCY] will take the following actions: Establish an SSEP Program Planning Team Analyze Capabilities and Hazards Perform Vulnerability Assessment Develop List of Action Items and Milestone Schedule Document Activities and Procedures


PLANNING TEAMWe will establish an SSEP PROGRAM PLANNING TEAM. We will recruit representatives from throughout the agency, because: It encourages participation and gets more people invested in the process. It increases the amount of time and energy participants are able to give. It enhances the visibility and stature of the planning process. It provides for a broad perspective on the issues. We will begin with our VAP Committee, and expand membership (if necessary) to make sure we include: Supervisors; drivers; volunteers and contractors; dispatchers; human resources; maintenance; safety and risk management; finance; marketing/community relations; and legal


PLANNING TEAMThe Executive Director will be a member of the SEPP PROGRAM PLANNING TEAM, which will be headed by the agency’s SSEP Program Point of Contact (POC). The Executive Director will prepare a memorandum authorizing the PLANNING TEAM, and providing sufficient resources to support its activities.   The SSEP PROGRAM PLANNING TEAM will provide an open invitation to all local public safety agencies to participate in meetings. Team members will actively seek public safety personnel review of relevant planning areas, such as security procedures and emergency scene management. The TEAM will make a formal presentation regarding its SSEP PROGRAM PLAN to its community public safety agencies, and will request the initiation of annual drilling and exercising activities with local responders.


SAMPLE VAP COMMITTEE AGENDA   I. Status of the SSEP Program Plan   II. “Proactive” Items for Discussion ·        Assess the agency’s current capabilities regarding security and emergency preparedness program ·        Look for new ways and means to improve security and emergency preparedness ·        Determine compliance with security and emergency responsibilities ·      Identify organizational issues that may contribute to security incidents or hinder effective emergency coordination and response ·        Promote security awareness   III. “Reactive” Items for Discussion ·        Review incidents to determine why they occurred ·       Debrief incidents, emergencies, drills and training to identify “lessons learned” and means of improvement ·       Determine what measures should be taken to follow-up on incidents, events, drills and training   IV. SSEP Program Action Items








ANALYZE CAPABILITIESThe SSEP PROGEAM PLANNING TEAM will initiate activities to determine our agency’s current level of preparedness. We will:   1.

ANALYZE CAPABILITIES3. Identify Codes and Regulations, including:   Occupational safety and health regulations Environmental regulations Fire codes Seismic safety codes Transportation regulations Zoning regulations Agency policies 4.

Public Safety ResponseNOTIFICATION: Reporting the incident to transit dispatch and supervisors EVALUATION: Evaluating the incident REQUESTING RESPONSE: Notifying local emergency responders; providing essential information PROTECTING THE SCENE: Perimeter control, evacuation and rescue assistance, emergency first aid SUPPORTING RESPONDERS: Meeting their requests, specialized services and equipment


Public Safety Response Dispatching emergency response personnel and equipment to the incident site Bringing emergency responders to and from the scene Implementing local incident command system Providing incident briefings and situation updates Triage and medical treatment and transportation to medical facilities for all victims


Public Safety Response Managing the emergency scene – initiating ICS functions as needed Expanding response to unified command with State and Federal resources (if needed) Demobilization – as control is restored Returning the scene to “normal” Clean-up Incident debriefings and “after action reports”


TA Support FunctionsEvacuation (transportation and identification) Specialized transportation for mobility-impaired citizens away from scene Transportation and shelter for emergency response response personnel Transportation of supplies Support of road blocks and perimeter control Weather monitoring and route planning Specialized equipment Trained personnel Communications


REQUIRED COORDINATIONWho’s participating? Contact information? Jurisdictional control and authority? How is the response effort expanded? Chain of command and control? Transit point of contact and location? Equipment and resources available? Training? Meetings?
