TOXIC TRAIN SAFETY - A First Responders Petition caused The Chlorine Institute to conduct a five-month study comparing the safety of secondary containment to the chlorine “C”-Kit for chlorine tank cars. The study proved secondary containment to be, by far, the safest technology for containing and preventing releases of chlorine gas. To see secondary containment - search “CHLORTANKER.”

Richmond Mayor is punishing the Fire Dept by discussing laying off firefighters for their own mistake. If Richmond would have paid the proper overtime then the city would not be in this situation. The lawsuit was not even started by Richmond Firefighters but the city is blaming them. I hope they will be ready to go into the hole for another lawsuit for retaliation.
