Last week, CN Campus at the Transcona yards (650 Pandora Ave. E) hosted two days of Transportation Community Awareness and Emergency Response (TRANSCAER) training.
Sponsored by the Railway Association of Canada, the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada, and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers in partnership with CN, CP, the Canadian Fuels Association and NOVA Chemicals, two day-long sessions trained over 100 emergency responders on how to prepare for a rail incident involving flammable liquids.
"Our facility provides hands-on training you can’t get elsewhere," said Steven Santelli, CN Dangerous Goods Officer, Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. Apart from training all new Canadian CN hires, the campus hosts regular specialty training sessions throughout the year, bringing thousands of people to Transcona from across the country.
