BNSF technology safety

BISMARCK, N.D. – Burlington Northern Santa Fe is reaching out to the Bismarck-Mandan communities to share important information about railway safety.

Because BNSF has consumer goods transported throughout North Dakota on a daily basis, they held a showcase at the Capitol in Bismarck to expand on their technology advancements in safety transportation.

Amy McBeth from BNSF Community Affairs says they want to offer the communities and lawmakers an opportunity to understand what this technology means.

“We know what works as more and more technology is deployed across the railroad industry we see the rates of incidents going down,” McBeth said.

While the rates of incidents are decreasing, BNSF’s technology continues to improve.
