Crossing blitz – May 2, 2:30 - 3:30pm in Airdrie, Alberta

Last month we posted the story of Andrew West's tragic death in 2001, as a result of having been hit by a train as he walked along the tracks in Airdrie, Alberta. We introduced you to the loving family he left behind, mother Roxane, grandmother, Betty and younger sister, Samantha. The family are dedicated supporters of Operation Lifesaver and actively promote our train safety message in their community.

In support of 2012's Rail Safety Week, Roxane, Betty and Samantha will be participating in a crossing blitz, scheduled for Wednesday, May 2, at the 1st Avenue level crossing in Airdrie, Alberta. The trio will be handing out Operation Lifesaver materials to pedestrians, while the RCMP share the same information with drivers.

Thank you to Roxane, Betty and Samantha for their support and commitment to sharing our important, lifesaving message. We could not achieve our mission without your help!
