Rail Awareness in Nevada

Welcome To The Rail Auxiliary Team

The Rail Auxiliary Team, affectionately know as the RAT PACK, currently serves in Washoe & Storey Counties, Nevada under the direction of the Washoe County Sheriff Office's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).

The Rail Auxiliary Team provides a trained force multiplier to cover railroads in metro and county areas against possible terrorist/sabotage actions or in situations deemed necessary by the Sheriff or Law Enforcement. The Team also uses education and reporting to help reduce or eliminate train/trespasser incidents.

RAT PACK members continue to work closely with railroad asset protection and security forces.
