Trash_Litter_and_your_playing_w_fire_2_2011 MBTA General Manager Rich Davey joined Boston Fire Commissioner Roderick Fraser today at the Downtown Crossing Station to launch a Subway Fire Prevention Campaign.  The T’s fire prevention public education campaign includes newly-designed signs that draw attention to the service problems and potential hazards created when trash and litter ignite on subway tracks. 

The subway fire prevention awareness campaign promotes the collaborative effort of state and local agencies in working together to educate customers about disposing of trash in receptacles available at all T stations.  Litter can easily be ignited by a spark, resulting in a trash fire and train delays.  There are approximately 10 to 15 subway fires each year that interrupt service and in some cases cause a station evacuation.
