Mock Disaster

The McAdam Railway Station was the location for a mock disaster on Wednesday,May 18th.

Three student actors were taking selfie pictures on the tracks when they were hit by a train. RCMP and ambulance paramedics responded to this mock disaster.

The P.A.R.T.Y. ( Prevent Alcohol Risk-Related Trauma in Youth ) was held for 46 Grade 9 students from McAdam and Harvey schools. The day program informed students the healing process for an injured person and their recovery. Information on alcohol poisoning, nutrition, wheelchair to bed transfer equipment instruction, impairment goggles that give you the sense of being under the influence along with a film on real accident victims and their story of life after their incident was included in the presentation.

Medical and NB Southern safety staff were present to give students first hand instruction.

A very informative session for an impressionable age group focusing on the prevention of disasters in the future.

Lunch Counter Images

We were pleasantly surprised with the response to our use of a Jason Bennett image of the Lunch Counter as our current profile image.

In 2012 Jason took a number of images throughout the Station and kindly agreed to our use of those images in promoting the Station and as a fund raiser.

Here are four images Jason took of the lunch counter – we hope you enjoy the additional images as much as you did the earlier image.

We have the first image available for sale in the gift shop as an 8” x 10” print, either double matted 11” x 14” or double matted and framed.

If you would like to receive additional information on these images simply message us.

Thanks for your support.
