When there’s an emergency and you pick up the phone to report, you always hope there’s a hero on the other line who knows the next step. At Union Pacific, those heroes are the Response Management Communications Center's critical call dispatchers who are ready to respond to emergencies 24/7.
For Union Pacific, ensuring the safety of everyone around the railroad is of the utmost importance, but even off the railroad, life can take an unexpected turn.
As a third generation railroader, Brad Brown, welder, Engineering, has been around the tracks for most of his life, and he’s seen a lot of changes over those years — including in his own experience.
The virtual program is designed to educate young drivers on practicing safety behind the wheel and creating smart habits, such as putting down their devices and paying attention to the road, especially around railroad tracks.
Wilson, Koko and Brewster, the stars of "Chuggington: Tales from the Rails," are spreading awareness about rail safety to preschoolers and elementary students, their parents and teachers.
