Princess Elizabeth Students Hear Important Safety Message
It’s National Rail Safety Week! With students across Windsor making their way to and from class each day, it’s a great time for Cris Cross, the ambassador of Windsor’s Train Safety Campaign to remind them about being safe around trains and train tracks. That message was shared today with the students of Princess Elizabeth Public School. The students watched a video featuring Cris Cross and heard from members of the Canadian Pacific Rail Police.
Cris Cross is the centrepiece of a two-year education campaign from the City of Windsor and Transport Canada about train safety, primarily aimed at elementary aged youth and young teens. The campaign is well into its second year with the goal of increasing awareness around train safety and the dangers of playing near tracks or trespassing on rail property.
Funding for the public awareness campaign comes from a Transport Canada grant and matching funds from the City of Windsor.
