On today's show we discuss transit's role in preparing, mitigating, and managing for all types of disasters. This includes natural disasters such as floods and hurricanes to medical disasters and even terrorism. We discuss how transit agencies play a role as part of a city or state's team in managing the disaster, as well as what transit agencies must do to prepare themselves for these events.
