Allen County Homeland Security Director Bernie Beier doesn't think the stalled crude oil tankers pose a greater risk to public safety in and around downtown.
"In its sitting state, it’s not that hazardous," Beier said.

According to Bernie Beier, Allen County homeland security director, the railroads only have to inform the counties they are carrying this type of load when there are 100 or more cars that contain the substance; each tanker car holds 30,000 gallons of crude oil.
Currently two to four of these types of trains come through Fort Wayne a week. The real danger, Beier said, is when you have a train carrying a lot of these cars along with other hazardous substances. If an accident occurs there could be an extreme chemical reaction with the other substances on the train. "It would not be a matter of putting it out; we couldn't," Beier said. It takes a special foam to smother a fire like that, and Fort Wayne has enough on hand to smother one car, Beier said. If multiple cars were involved it would be a matter of containing the damage and keeping the hazardous run-off from getting into sewers and rivers. Crude oil from fracking is more explosive than other types because it contains a lot of byproduct in it, including light gases that are highly flammable. "It's not a fight you are going to win; what you can do is contain it," Beier said. Skiver agreed with Beier, in the event of a large derailment and fire it will be more a matter of containing it while it's burning down. The upgrade included updating the track and installing sensors that will let operators know if a train is running with extra hot brakes, Beier said.

Director of the Allen County Office of Homeland Security, Bernie Beier explains why he thinks the night club was targeted.
"These are soft targets, where an attacker over time, plans these attacks could be somewhat guaranteed at a particular time and place to have a large number of people so their planning efforts would be fruitful for what they are trying to do," said Beier. With devastation like this, Beier explains the importance of being aware. "We'd like to believe we could stop them all, we simply can't, but we can certainly do a better job by working together at the community level to identify these threats and either find them the help that they need, the psychological help, the law enforcement, whatever intervention is needed, but it all starts with an alert public who isn't afraid to say something if they see something," Beier.

"The bottom line for today is bringing business and government together to address the same common challenges that we might have in a disaster," said Bernie Beier, Director of Homeland Security for Fort Wayne and Allen County.
Beier said that people need to learn how to work together now before a disaster strikes. "Everybody's got something at stake," said Beier.
