Jerusalem firefighters have made progress in solving some of the problems with responding to emergencies with the light rail, the fire and rescue services spokesman said on Tuesday.

Previously, firefighters and the light rail had disagreed over who had the authority to turn off the electricity, causing delays of over an hour in some of the drills that the firefighters conducted this past spring.

Firefighters also learned how to use special air bags to lift the light rail, which weighs a staggering 41 tons per car.
