'Post-Mortem' on a D.C. Subway Accident
 
We don’t want to pick on the Washington Metro, but our attention was drawn to this Washington Post report on an accident in a tunnel below L’Enfant Plaza last January 12. Fairly or not, the report suggests a lack of coordination between the Metro and D.C. firemen, the kind of coordination that might result from effective crisis preparedness and training.

Again, a good crisis communication plan, practiced in drills, is part of effective public relations, not to mention public safety.
