Long-term impact and public health response after the Lac-Mégantic oil train tragedy
Apr 20 @ 9:45 pm – 11:15 pm

On July 6, 2013, a train carrying 72 cars of crude oil derailed in Lac-Mégantic, Canada, causing 47 deaths, the destruction of 44 buildings, an evacuation of 2,000 people, and a catastrophic oil spill. How do we prepare for and prevent these tragedies?

This event will highlight current issues in public health, resiliency and disaster response planning and address preventive safety measures for high-hazard freight trains.
