RAIL SAFETY WEEK

Canada's Rail Safety Week is April 24 to April 30, 2017.  When you “See Tracks” always “Think Train!”   This week we are joining Canadian Pacific and all Canadian railways in reminding people to make smart decisions around tracks and trains. In 2016, 46 pedestrians and 19 drivers tragically lost their lives in preventable rail incidents. Take the pledge to be safe around tracks and trains this Rail Safety Week.

Always practice situational awareness around tracks and trains to keep yourself safe. This Rail Safety Week, choose the safe route to school or work and stick to it. Don’t let a shortcut cut your life short. If you use railway property or tracks as walking paths, you risk your life. Always use designated paths and crossings. This Rail Safety Week, speak to your children about dangers at level crossings and railway property.

 

The Village of Radium Hot Springs is proud to be a partner in Rail Safety this Rail Safety Week. Always remember, when you See Tracks Think Train!!
