At CN, safety is a core value. That focus, dedication and care extends to our employees as well as our customers and the communities in which we operate. Operating safely and creating safe working conditions can sometimes be challenged by extreme weather events such as intense heat, which can increase the risk of wildfires.

We have a robust Fire Plan to address these conditions and mitigate these risks, and recently, we have developed additional measures to increase prevention, monitoring and response to wildfire risks. These additional measures are included in our Extreme Weather Plan. The measures will allow us to continue to serve our customers while protecting the communities near our lines.

Safety is a Shared Responsibility

Your perspective is important to us. As we better understand your perspectives, as well as other potential risk mitigations we will continue to adjust our plan, leveraging the latest best-practices, technology and innovations.

We welcome your feedback on the Extreme Weather Plan. Please feel free to call our Public Inquiry line at 1-888-888-5909.
