“The hazard is in not knowing”…that was the primary point emphasized by the CSX Railroad Police (CSXRP) during a training exercise June 29 at Lugoff Fire Department (LFD) headquarters. The LFD invited CSXRP Special Agent In-Charge Dave Thomerson to present a training exercise on Rail Safety for Emergency Responders. The CSX railroad runs through Kershaw County with the rail line splitting the Lugoff Fire District almost in half and the line is shared with Amtrak passenger trains.
