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