Tri-City Railroad is proud to welcome our newest customer to our line, Savage Transportation.
Savage Transportation has begun bringing in the fire retardant, Phos Chek, by rail to Richland. Phos Chek is noted as being one of the most effective and environmentally friendly fire retardants on the market. Once arriving in Richland the Phos Check is transloaded and sent off for use to fight wildfires in the area typically by being dropped via airplane or helicopter.
This year Washington has seen a much higher fire danger than usual with extreme temperatures and drought, making it critical that means to fight the current and expected fires are readily available.
