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.

mosquito pesticides next assault on hurricane survivors?

FEMA has tasked USAF for mosquito control missions over south Louisiana. Within the targeted areas, there remain hundreds of thousands of Katrina/Rita survivors who became victims to the toxic exposure in FEMA trailers. What heath effects can be expected to these victims who continue to suffer from the ill effects of formaldehyde and will now likely be exposed to Dibrom/Naled?

I find the idea of FEMA using DOD aircraft to spray a toxin nerve agent (DIBROM/NALED) over disaster survivors, who were exposed to formaldehyde in FEMA trailers, alarming.

Will Dibrom/Naled MSDS be provided to FEMA victims who have acquired respiratory complications? Did CDC approve of this mission?
