About ToxicTrailers.com

ToxicTrailers.com was launched after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when the government spent more than $2 billion on FEMA trailers with high levels of formaldehyde that sickened thousands of people. The FEMA trailer tragedy exposed what is a widespread problem in RVs, mobile homes, modular buildings and even conventional buildings that use pressed wood products. Unfortunately, as we approach the tenth anniversary of Katrina, formaldehyde regulations are not being enforced in the U.S., and people's health is at risk. If you are having burning eyes, congestion, sore throat, coughing, breathing difficulties, frequent sinus infections or rashes, and difficulties concentrating, you may have a formaldehyde problem.

hard time walking to mailbox and back

Have been keeping up with issue since may 2006 thanks to the Sierra Club's intervention--.

I know we need a safe amount of formaldehyde in woods to keep bugs from enjoying their favorite past time--eating.

Couple of weeks before moving into FEMA trailer I walked according to ex coach of high school football here in area 15 miles with coach.

Now I have a hard time to walk to mail box and back.

FEMA says they will bring in another trailer or subsidise on renting of apt.

Have asked FEMA to come in and use sniffer to determine levels of harmful agents.

When I first called fema said they would be out in six hours--they never showed up.

I feel I should not let trailer go before it is tested.

Could your organization perform these tests???

Please advise.
