KEEP­ING RAIL SAFE

EMER­GENCY PRE­PARED­NESS

For house­holds, prepa­ra­tions in­clude iden­ti­fy­ing haz­ards and emer­gen­cies most likely to oc­cur, mak­ing an emer­gency plan and mak­ing a 72-hour emer­gency kit.

COM­MU­NITY PRE­PARED­NESS

At the com­mu­nity level, cre­ate a team with your fam­ily, friends and neigh­bours. Set goals and track progress.

SHEL­TER­ING IN PLACE

1. If a rail emer­gency oc­curs, it is best to stay in­doors and away from win­dows and doors. Do not go out­side to in­ves­ti­gate. Bring pets in­side. 2. Close all win­dows and doors, seal cracks around the doors with wide tape and a rolled damp towel. Turn off the fur­nace, air con­di­tioner, etc. 3. Mon­i­tor lo­cal TV, ra­dio sta­tions and web­sites for in­for­ma­tion and up­dates.
