Staff volunteers from Arc Infrastructure were proud to lend a hand to promote rail safety at the Constable Care Safety School Emergency Services Family Day held in January.
Hundreds of school-aged children attended with their parents and carers, and had the opportunity to meet police, firefighters and ambulance officers, ride bikes around the School’s interactive bike track, as well as interact with displays including the Arc Infrastructure ‘Arc Station’.
Young visitors to Arc Station participated in the fun and interactive Track Splat Roadshow, featuring the Track Splat video game with characters including Arc Infrastructure’s friendly mascot Jack, activities and giveaways for the kids.
Arc Infrastructure CEO Murray Cook attended the event and said the partnership with the Constable Care Safety School was an important part of the company’s commitment to educating the community about rail safety.
“Rail safety has always been important to us at Arc because it isn’t just about the safety of our people - it’s also the safety of our customers and contractors and the hundreds of communities that surround our rail network.
“We believe by teaching kids about rail safety at a younger age, they are more likely to recall and use these learnings in the future,” Mr Cook said.
The event was officially opened by Minister for Police the Hon Michelle Roberts MLA and WA Commissioner of Police Chris Dawson.
Arc Infrastructure is a Foundation Partner of the Constable Care Safety School which opened in Maylands in July 2017. Arc Infrastructure contributed more than $330,000 to the Safety School, including a direct funding contribution of $250,000 to create the state-of-the-art learning environment that includes a replica town with fully-functioning traffic lights and rail crossings.
