KCR Light Rail emergency exercise
KCRC Light Rail joined hands with government departments to conduct an emergency exercise this morning (24 May). The scenario simulated a pedestrian who trespassed into Light Rail tracks and was hit by an approaching light rail vehicle. The Fire Services Department and the Police were called to evacuate the injured trespasser trapped underneath the vehicle.
The exercise also simulated a passenger on board the light rail vehicle had his chemicals spilt over and there was smoke emitted out. The firemen arrived to handle and clear the chemicals.
