DOW Chemicals Firefighters Safety Train

The DOW Chemicals Firefighters Education and Training Foundation Safety Train at Rook Yard in Carnegie, PA. There was an incident with a leaking tank car at Rook Yard a few weeks ago. The neighborhoods surrounding the yard were not evacuated as firefighters and W&LE workers were able to stop the leak fairly quickly and no one was harmed.

 

These Safety Trains travel the county to train local fire departments and other first responders along chemical transportation routes. This boxcar on the safety train is used as a classroom.
