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.

FEMA did more damage than Katrina

I am 67, my wife is younger an we have lived in a FEMA trailer for more than a year. I arrived at the trailer and taped to my door was a message from fema explaining formaldehyde in the trailers and the symptoms. I had every symptom on the message and moved out of the trailer immediately.
I am having trouble breathing, I get nose bleeds, I itch a lot and have a constant cough. I am under doctors care and do not seem to be getting better. I know that FEMA meant well, but they have done more damage to me then "Katrina" could have ever done.
Thanks for listening,
John M., Long Beach
