K & J Conducts Full Scale Exercise with MATA

K & J Safety and Security Consulting Services recently helped Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) conducted a full-scale exercise for the Main Street Trolley Line on June 21, 2017. The scenario was a motor vehicle accident with an operating trolley. Two young intoxicated individuals had previously stolen a vehicle and were driving at a high rate of speed when they crashed head on into the trolley. Some of the participating organizations for MATA’s Full Scale Exercised included:

  • Memphis Police Department
  • Memphis Fire Department / EMS
  • Memphis Area Transit Authority

K & J Safety and Security Consulting Services helped MATA note some strengths and weaknesses once the full-scale exercise concluded. Some of the strengths included:

  • Communications within the MATA organization
  • Good interaction between MATA and all the emergency responders in order to provide treatment and mitigate the incident.
