Abstract

The train crash that occurred in London in 1999 resulted in 31 dead and almost 300 injured persons. Mobilized resources allowed for the application of normal treatment principles. Available resources were in excess of what was needed. The procedures implemented were judged as adequate. Responses followed the management plan formulated over many years and experiences. The rotating command procedures used worked well. Multiple communications systems were used, including landline telephones, mobile telephones, and radios. Plans should include caring for both adults and children. Well-planned psychosocial services and functional compute services are essential components.
