'Oil by Rail' National Awareness Week
date and time: Saturday July 12th, 2014 @ 6pm
location: Event location will be at the South East corner of Elgin and Archer, the corner gate entrance to ONEOK Field in downtown Tulsa. See you there.
Since the hazard from these oil trains is not well known, we need signs that educate with one of the following messages:
1. No Exploding Oil Trains in Tulsa
2. Bakken shale oil: EXTRA EXPLOSIVE
3. DOT-111 tank cars are not safe!
4. Leave Bakken shale oil in the ground!
5. Exploding trains: Could your town be next?
Please plan to attend even if you cannot make a sign. There will be signs available to hold.
