Light Rail Emergency Drill Exercise
RTD Police, North Metro Fire Rescue District, Thornton Fire Department, Thornton Police Department and other agencies conducted an emergency preparedness exercise on July 20th, 2022 at the Light Rail N Line bridge over 120th Ave. in Thornton. Emergency crews responded to a mock accident between Commerce City to East Lake. Crews treated the injured, evacuated passengers and honed their rescue techniques for this type of situation. The simulated exercise allowed local agencies to coordinate communication and response strategies in the event of an actual emergency along RTD’s N line.
