RAIL SAFETY WEEK

Canada's Rail Safety Week runs September 23 - 29, 2019.  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. 

"Incidents can happen in a split-second and can have tragic and far-reaching consequences for your family, friends and community, said Al Sauve, CP Police Service Chief. “Rail safety requires 24/7 vigilance, and CP asks that everyone think about their safety around railway property. We continue to focus education and enforcement efforts towards building communities of rail safety ambassadors young and old. Just like how we speak to children about safely crossing the street, everyone should know how to interact safely with railway property and equipment.”

CP is proud to be the safest railway in North America, with the lowest FRA reportable train accident rate among all Class 1 railways for 13 years straight. 

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!!
