Do you live or work in the blast zone?  Where will your kids be?

We live in an age where safety and environmental regulations are being dismantled at alarming rates. We can no longer trust that we will be safe from catastrophes like these.

Potential thermal radiation burn  – Areas of concern

The assumptions are problematic. If you are within the red zone, you are at risk of a lethal burn within 60 seconds of an explosion. If you are in the orange zone, you are at risk of second-degree burns within 60 seconds of exposure to the thermal radiation. If you are in the yellow zone, you are at risk of pain within 60 seconds of exposure to the thermal radiation. The longer you are exposed to the thermal radiation, the greater the risk to your body.

The red zone also includes the proposed firehouse.  Long dormant, the firehouse sits immediately opposite the entrance to the LNG site on 11th St. E.   Any explosion that would warrant the need of that fire departments presence would put the firefighters lives in grave danger.
