Rail Line Safety in the Spotlight
The Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Shortline Rail Association are partnering to raise train safety awareness in elementary schools across the province. The government and SSRA distribute train safety activity booklets to Grade 4 students in more than 100 schools near Saskatchewan shortline railways. Public Rail Safety Week is an Operation Lifesaver initiative that aims to bring awareness to rail safety and encourages people to be safe while travelling near rail crossings or tracks.
