How prepared are the local government and its citizens for a train, plane or truck hazardous spill?

I've lived here all my life, 38 years and I've never come across any materials warning the neighborhood of what to do or where to find info or help. Time to prep personally for this situation. This will be an all around logistical nightmare!

Webcam and Security Camera Neighborhood Watch

Remember the Scottsdale Nighthawks? We can be our own security team by taking advantage of low cost webcams and security cams and taking a few minutes a day to watch over our homes and streets. Switch over to your cams during commercial breaks or whenever you have a little free time and the neighborhood will become a secure place to be. Some cams can be viewed over the internet, so you can always keep an eye on things back home.

Kennedy king College Aspen Award

What a wonderful achievement. The achievement adds values to the importance of having a clean, relatively safe and modern facility for learning. Wisely, regional students/residents chose KKC, instead of traditional trade schools. Another, important reason for their success was KKC's financial aid department that when the extra mile to maximize student federal grant offerings. KKC was penalitized for that in FY 2014, but was in my opinion innocent for their zeal to assist impovished students desired to go higher.

Both Chicago Major Newspapers endorse Chuks Onyezia, in his Vision and Direction for the 18th ward!

This is an outstanding honor and we're excited to share this great news.

SUNTIMES: "Four years ago, we endorsed Chuks Onyezia, a patent attorney, over incumbent Ald. Lona Lane, then an unimpressive stalwart of Mayor Richard M. Daley. Today, we again endorse Onyezia over Lane, now an unimpressive stalwart of Mayor Rahm Emanuel."
http://chicago.suntimes.com/editorials-opinion/7/71/344724/endorsements

TRIBUNE: "Voters need someone who's a lot more aggressive than [Ald. Lane]. Chuks Onyezia, who earned our endorsement in 2011, is an outstanding candidate. He's a patent attorney with an MBA from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and publisher of a community newsletter"

    Those that cannot make a rational argument reference this homicidal dictator. I have made a pilgrimage to a concentration camp – you have no idea. Shame on you. You should apologize. You no longer deserve any future comment

    Although Chuy has not given us any specifics (and "I'm not Rahm" won't carry him the rest of the way), we know what we have with Rahm and it's brutal. Rahm had 4 years to make advances in all of Chicago's areas and we don't have that. We have some of the city benefitting at the expense of the almost - absent middle class. He has served as a republican in my opinion and should not have another term. It would just waste 4 years of possible progress. Chuy will have but 4 years to show himself too, maybe he stays and maybe he only gets one term.
