TRAIN DERAILMENT CHEMICAL SPILL
Because of the close proximity to the railroad tracks Hope College needs to be prepared to respond should a train carrying toxic chemicals derail. If there is a train derailment you will be notified on what to do next. Be prepared to:
- Stay upwind of the accident
- Prevent others from going outside to see what happened.
- Keep an eye on local news and the college website on what to do next.
- WHJTC - 1450AM - 392-3121
- WTHS - 89.9AM
- Prepare (if asked to do so) to evacuate the area nearest the RR tracks and proceed to the college rally area located between the A Schaap Science Center and VanZoeren Hall or if inclement weather inside these buildings. (See map below)
- Call 911 if you are trapped or need assistance in getting to the rally area.
