Emergency Response and Training

Vancouver Energy acknowledges emergency response is integral to crude-by-rail safety, and takes very seriously our role in preparing emergency responders from both a personnel and equipment perspective.

Vancouver Energy and BNSF Railway will sponsor three emergency response training exercises and invite state, local and tribal leaders to participate. These exercises will take place in Vancouver, Spokane and in the Columbia River Gorge. Vancouver Energy will also pay for the City of Vancouver and Clark County fire departments to fund backup staffing while its employees attend emergency response training.
