Emergency Plans for the Metro Revealed

Emergency plans for the Metro rail revealedThe Shenzhen transport commission in charge of handling Metro emergencies revealed a contingency plan. The plan involves a four level response system that will handle emergencies such as natural disasters, accidents, public health incidents and public security.

The Metro company will initiate a level 4 response which is the lowest level if there are incidents that involve the deaths of no more than three people, injuries of less than ten people and property losses of ten million yuan. A Level four response also applies to incidents that delay the Metro trains from 30 to 60 minutes.

Level 1, which is the highest level, involves incidents that cause the deaths of more than thirty people, or pose a danger to fifty people or more, and might cause injuries and death to more than a hundred people. Level 1 will also be initiated if the incidents will cause property damage of more than 100 million yuan.

Emergencies rated from the lowest to highest will be colored coded using blue, yellow, orange and red to determine the level of the emergency. Whenever a train stops for more than four minutes or if an electrical short circuit happens, the traffic coordination center will receive an alarm, and command headquarters will be notified to take immediate action.
