Emergency training centre.

In case of emergency. The BVG operates an emergency training centre, the only one of its kind in the world, in an area of Jungfernheide underground station. In a 350-metre section of tunnel with a platform, responses to all kinds of emergencies, including smoke in the tunnel, can be practised. To help practise correct conduct in the event of an emergency, an information and emergency call point is also available on the platform. Training is primarily offered to security staff involved in rescue operations at underground stations, in particular the fire brigade, the police, the Technisches Hilfswerk (civil protection), the Federal Border Guard, and other civil protection organisations. Participants can choose either a one-day or three-day seminar.

Road safety education

Stay street smart. Public transport is an essential part of everyday life. It gives everyone the chance to get around. The BVG’s road safety education initiatives aim to introduce five to ten-year-olds at Berlin’s schools to using buses and trains safely on their own. Teachers at Berlin schools were particularly interested in child-friendly practical training with real buses and trains. The BVG responded with free mobility and road safety education programmes, which go by the name PRAXISTAG (“practice day”). The Traffic Academy offers the following events on working days: • BUS PRACTICE DAY • UNDERGROUND PRACTICE DAY • TRAM PRACTICE DAY
The aims of these practice days:
  • instil a clear understanding of how to use public transport safely
  • learn how to recognise, name, and avoid dangerous situations in good time
  • see drivers and other staff as helpful partners to encourage mutual understanding
  • reduce inhibitions by acquiring expertise
  • recognise conflict situations and respond appropriately
In addition, there are regular theme weeks on the subject of “blind spots on the road” or similar events in Berlin. The BVG’s road safety education initiative is part of the Omnibus Traffic Academy and is now a fully established part of road safety education at Berlin’s schools. It is both welcomed and appreciated by the Berlin Parents Association and the relevant Senate departments. Target audience
