Southern's Go-Team, a team of trained specialists, has been established to respond to emergencies involving hazardous materials, and to provide guidance and assistance to the railway officers in charge.

Based in Atlanta, the highly mobile team is capable of instant response, either by air or land, to any point on Southern's 10,200 miles of railroad.

When not responding to emergencies, the team will be training key officers on each division in procedures for identifying and dealing with hazardous materials, thus developing a corps of trained officers.
