In late May, BNSF worked closely with first responders from four local fire departments as they conducted their annual emergency response training in the Alameda Corridor, which connects the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach to the national rail network.

The Los Angeles City, Los Angeles County, Compton and Vernon fire departments participated, along with representatives from Union Pacific and the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority.

The training scenarios included a fire in a cargo container or a tanker leak to an injured person stuck on the tracks.
