In 2016, the Port of Palm Beach District Railway achieved a perfect safety record with no reported injuries. In recognition of this outstanding achievement, the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association has honored us with the 2016 Jake Award.
Since its inception in 1995, the Jake Award program has evolved into the premier safety award in the short line community. The Jake Award is a testament to the dedication and professionalism of the Port's employees and management team.
During yesterday's Board of Commissioners meeting held at the Port, the members of the Board presented the Jake Award to Al Fawcett, Train Master, and his Rail Crew. For more information on the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association, visit www.aslrra.org.
