Railway Air-Raid Precautions

Railway Air-Raid Precautions.

The absence of enemy air attacks during the winter enabled the Home railways to perfect their precautionary measures, and complete air-raid precaution schemes are now in operation at all points, enabling railway operations to proceed with a minimum of interference during a raid. At each of the larger stations there have been appointed from among the staffs a chief A.R.P. warden and deputy wardens, with fully-trained squads of fire-fighters, first-aid contingents, and decontamination and demolition squads. Railway workers have entered into A.R.P. training enthusiastically, and lectures and demonstrations have been well attended.
