KCRC Light Rail emergency exercise
KCRC Light Rail carried out a joint emergency exercise with the government departments this morning (27 November) near Hung Tin Road Emergency Platform to test the responsiveness of the rescue teams during an emergency.
The exercise simulated a collision between a light rail vehicle and a double-decked bus near Hung Tin Road Emergency Platform. A total of 30 passengers on board the light rail vehicle and bus were injured in the accident. The rescue teams soon arrived at the scene and rescued the "injured". The Fire Services Department, Police and Tuen Mun Hospital also took part in today’s exercise.
