Oil hazards

I noted the Dec. 31 Page A4 story about the crude oil train fire in North Dakota. This would now be the third large crude oil train fire in less than a year.

Is the public aware that the proposed Phillips 66 refinery expansion will result in the introduction of additional trains with this type of cargo into the county? Has the county leadership insisted upon adequate safeguards and improvements for the increased hazardous operation and potential disasters? Just wondering.
