Be prepared

Resident concerned about propane tankers travelling through Vernon

Although officer Gerry Kovac’s experience at the Boston Marathon bombings opened eyes as to our state of readiness here in Vernon, let’s all remember that a Boston-type experience is not likely to happen here. I believe that the other big newsmaker is far more important – the fertilizer plant explosion in Texas.

Has anyone else noticed how often the railway leaves propane tankers parked in the middle of the city?

City resources could be better spent convincing the railways to locate tankers out of town.
