Evacuation drill at Longueuil terminal, University of Sherbrooke and 100 place Charles-le Moyne
As part of the Plan de sécurité incendie for the Longueuil terminal, the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) will participate in an evacuation drill at 100 place Charles Le Moyne and at the Longueuil campus of the University of Sherbrooke on Wednesday, July 26, 2017, at around 10:30 a.m.
The drill will be conducted in collaboration with all partners involved, namely the City of Longueuil, the Réseau de transport métropolitain, the Société de transport de Montréal, and the University of Sherbrooke.
During the drill, which will last approximately 30 minutes, everyone present at the Longueuil terminal will be evacuated, and access to the terminal and to the building at 100 place Charles Le Moyne will be prohibited; this includes the bus boarding areas, businesses, offices, and the metro station. The drill will serve to confirm the effectiveness of the existing evacuation plan, thus ensuring the safety of bus and metro commuters, and staff and students at the University of Sherbrooke.
To offset any delays caused by the evacuation drill at the Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station (yellow line), the RTL will provide a shuttle service to the Papineau metro station (green line).
The RTL thanks its clients in advance for their patience and understanding, and assures them that every effort will be made to minimize the impacts of the drill on its services.
