Washington Post 01 Jul 2000
Metro will launch a "safety blitz" this month that includes changes in emergency management, a hunt for hazards looming in the subway and daily spot quizzes of train operators.
The shake-up in safety procedures follows an April 20 incident in which Metro controllers knowingly sent a rush-hour train toward a fire in a subway tunnel. No one was injured in the blaze, but public confidence in the subway system was shaken. In the months since, Metro has been picking apart its procedures and people.
