Brett Shipp is catching up. 😉 And I’m so glad Shipp is on this story.
The really crazy thing is that the first responders didn’t know what was going on at the facility. It’s stupid and negligent that our first responders are exposed to these chemicals and processes and they don’t know what the chemicals are.
Shipp revealed in this story that the facility does not have a risk management plan and 80% of their business is oil and gas. Look for massive attempts to cover up.
Oh and I just wanted to add: Shipp was clued in about the fracking chemicals because of the hazardous materials signs on the rail cars parked near the plant. (Remember that even though oil and gas waste contains hazardous chemicals, they have an exemption from the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act so they don’t have to call their waste hazardous.) So, I thought it would be a good time to remind you about this sign that was on the side of a frack truck about 300 feet from the Ruggieros’ home.
