"The function of the SDNR/COASTER Emergency Preparedness Plan is to provide a comprehensive guide for appropriate action. This Plan is the controlling document to be used during any emergency situation that may occur during the course of normal operating conditions. While the overall objective is to ensure compliance with 49 CFR 223 and 239, as required, this Plan may establish additional, more stringent requirements where the need for such is indicated. The primary objectives of this Plan can be summarized as follows: ensure preservation of life, the highest level of services for all customers affected by an emergency, the expeditious restoration of track, service, and equipment while minimizing environmental damage, the protection and preservation of SDNR/COASTER property, and assistance in any subsequent accident investigation process."
