Ridgewood NJ, According to Rep. Scott Garrett we have seen an increase in the amount of oil trains travelling through our area, and many people have concerns about what this means for their homes and their families. Because of this, he recently hosted a meeting in Bergen County so town officials and local emergency coordinators could hear directly from federal regulators and representatives from the rail industry about efforts to ensure the safety of our communities.
Garret said ,”I believe it’s important that local officials and the public have access to this information, and we must keep these lines of communication open.”
And Garret Stressed , “I remain committed to hearing from all sides in order to continue my work on this important issue, and I’m looking forward to holding more meetings with New Jerseyans who have questions about train safety.”
