TRANSCAER Launches a New Virtual Reality Tool in July 2021

A new web-based virtual reality (VR) experience of the CCPX 911 safety training tank car will go live on the TRANSCAER website in July 2021.  This VR experience will provide first responders with familiarization and awareness with railway equipment, emergency response and safety procedures, and the transportation of dangerous goods.

Developed in partnership with CIAC members and partners, the Railway Association of Canada, and Transport Canada under the Rail Safety Improvement Program (RSIP) the VR tool will deliver an interactive learning experience that will be available online for all users to access on demand.  This is just one of the exciting projects we have planned through this RSIP partnership. In the Fall, TRANSCAER will begin offering virtual outreach events using the new VR technology.

Stay tuned for more updates and virtual outreach events coming soon!
