As most of you are aware Norfolk Southern Railroad has begun transloading ethanol from DOT 111 rail cars to DOT 406 tank trucks, at their west end facility. The Fire Chief and City Officials are in negotiations with Norfolk Southern to obtain the necessary equipment and training that will be necessary to deal with an ethanol incident. Currently alcohol resident foam (AR-AFFF) is being stored on site at the entrance to the property. A Knox box has been installed on the fence containing keys to the foam storage, gates, and field office, along with after hours contact information. On the "U" drive you will find photographs of the facility, transfer operation, and foam storage container. Tours of the facility will be coming soon, along with training on the transfer operation.  I will keep you advised as more information becomes available, feel free to contact me if you have questions.
