PUEBLO, Colo. — The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced today that the Transportation Technology Center will receive a $5 million national training program grant for training state, local, and tribal first responders at its Security and Emergency Response Training Center campus.

TTC, a subsidiary of the Association of American Railroads, is one of seven members of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium, providing world-class training in emergency response to the nation's public safety response communities. TTC has been a member of the consortium since 2009.

“TTC strongly supports DHS/FEMA’s efforts in keeping our surface transportation safe and secure,” said Mike Cook, Executive Director of SERTC. “None of this would have been possible without the support of our local, State, and Federal representatives who have visited our site on many occasions and fully understand the value of providing this training to the emergency response community.

“We are honored that they have selected us to help train our nation’s emergency responders.”
