Command-level decision making is a critical factor in successfully managing and mitigating critical incidents.

The TRB Transit Cooperative Research Program's TCRP Web-Only Document 75: Command-Level Decision Making for Transportation Emergency Managers is a document done in collaboration with TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) and Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP). The work is designed to assist public transportation agencies, state departments of transportation (DOTs), and airports to develop training and exercises as they prepare for natural or manmade disaster incidents. It can also be used by organizations as they prepare to meet training and exercise requirements.

Supplemental to the document are artifacts and scenario outlines and narratives.
