I thought this was wrote about before very recent? I guess the people of mayfield did not get the correct anwser they needed at that time.Now I would like to see all the people in the mayfield area happy because we need the monies they give to our legal systems in the surrounding area.They help pay the police,doctors,lawyers,judges, graveyards making money.So lets just move the trains over to a White Area that should do it for them.

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.”

WARNING: FIRST RESPONDERS’ use of THE CHLORINE INSTITUTE “C” KIT may cause the catastrophic failure of a chlorine tank car, instantly creating a toxic gas plume with a distance of not less than seven miles. The first mile will have chlorine concentrations of 1,000 ppm, causing death after one or two breaths with no opportunity for escape. To learn more, see PETITION C KIT, click on “First Responder Warnings.”
