Firefighters will demonstrate how they would evacuate a locomotive in an emergency at the next meeting of LincUP (Lincoln County - UPRR Community Advisory Panel). The meeting will begin at 5:15 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 23 in the student lounge on the north campus of the North Platte Community College.
North Platte Fire Chief Dennis Thompson and a team of firefighters will give the demonstration, facilitator Lorre McKeone said.
LincUP meetings are open to the public. It is a volunteer panel of community members and railroad representatives that meets monthly to explore health, safety and environmental issues involving the railroad.
