Michigan Railroads Association

The Michigan Railroads Association is providing a list of Railroad Emergency Contact Numbers to all POAM members for their safety. To improve highway-rail crossing safety, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) now requires each railroad to have an Emergency Notification System (ENS), which allows emergency response center staff to identify crossing locations and railroad contacts for reporting safety problems and emergency situations.

What to Do in Case of an Emergency

  • Look for a blue-and-white emergency notification sign,
  • The ENS sign should be posted near the crossing and clearly visible it includes the name of the railroad, the railroad’s emergency contact number, and the USDOT National Crossing Inventory Number.
  • Using the information on the ENS sign is the quickest way to notify the railroad.
