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.

I thought I was dying...

Dear Sirs,
I purchased a FEMA mobile home which I dearly love in August 2006. I had been living in a FEMA trailer since hurricanes Jean, Frances, etc. came thru Polk County. I was given option to buy mobile home.
I and my two grown children, my daughter is legally blind, have been having lots of breathing difficulties. Headaches. Sinus. Skin rashes. Being tired all the time and I have had joint pains as well as my daughter.
Over the past few months it seems so bad I actually thought I was dying that something was really wrong because of the chronic fatigue and joints symptoms and headaches and breathing problems. My mother was over today and informed me to get my mobile home checked as FEMA has a formaldehyde problem. I started researching symptoms and my god we have most of the symptoms.
Who do I contact to get my trailer tested?
Thank you for your help,
Jamie, angelspirit@tampabay.rr.com
