Dear Ward Members: as you've probably heard, there was a tragic train accident on the red line of the metro this afternoon. Latest reports indicate 6 people were killed and roughly 100 others injured. As we have quite a few members of the Ward who use the metro daily, it would probably be a good idea for all home teachers and visiting teachers to make contact with the individuals on their lists - at least frequent metro users - to ensure everyone is ok. It would particularly make sense to check on those who reside alone. Please try and make contact within the next 24 hours or so and report back any concerns or folks you're worried about. Thanks.
