Nothing is more important to BNSF Railway than safety and this extends to reducing the risk of accidents involving people who are in encampments on or near the railroad’s right-of-way.

BNSF collaborates with local government and community groups to reach out to make people aware of safety concerns and to connect them with services.

More than $110,000 has been donated this year by the BNSF Railway Foundation to health and human service providers and nonprofits in Washington state that are helping to provide shelter, health care and food to people in need.
