As a rail transportation company in North America we are legally required to move dangerous goods, also known as hazardous materials. We recognize the important responsibility we have to protect the safety of communities when transporting dangerous goods, and have implemented comprehensive initiatives to protect safety and minimize risk.
We believe the rail industry can enhance safety by working closely with communities. We engage first responders and local officials, sharing information about our safety programs, notification and response protocols, and the training we can offer in support of our mutual goal to protect public safety.
Communities are also informed about what dangerous goods are transported through their area to help emergency response agencies better prepare for response to a potential incident.
