Residents Can Ask Questions Online About Train Derailment
In an effort to get more timely information out to the residents of Paulsboro and the public, Gloucester County is establishing a form that people can fill out on line to have their questions answered regarding the train derailment and subsequent activities that have occurred since Friday, Nov. 30.
“As the county is working in a support capacity to the agencies involved, we know our residents, we know they have concerns and we are going to work to get their questions answered in a clear and concise manner by experts in the field,” said Freeholder Director Robert Damminger.
By visiting the Gloucester County website at www.gloucestercountynj.gov and clicking on the red Alerts, a box to the left will have information about the derailment and a link to ‘Ask Questions.’
Residents are invited to ask a question, in turn, the County Office of Emergency Management will work to find the appropriate expert to answer the question as soon as an answer can be ascertained. Answers will be posted to reduce duplicate questions.
Freeholder Deputy Director Chila said, “There is a high level of frustration in the community and our goal is to minimize that frustration through providing any factual information that we can. The county has the technical capacity through its website to provide this service and we hope it helps get people the answers they are looking for.”
