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.

many will go homeless soon...
Yesterday, I was contacted by a concerned FEMA worker who feels that the recovery has left many behind. She believes that FEMA will actually pull out on May 1st leaving thousands in south Mississippi homeless. Many of these individuals are disabled, sick and unable to help themselves. Many FEMA housing unit contain formaldehyde and toxic mold contaminated. CDC appears to adjusting formaldehyde testing in order to get FEMA desired results so that these units can be sold to these victims It is understood that the CDC formaldehyde test personnel have aired the units and may re-test several times in order to get a favorable results. Mold and water leaks are present in many units. Remember many of the FEMA personnel who are still working in Mississippi are locals who were affected by Katrina. These employees need their jobs to feed their families and to recover from Katrina, they fear reprisial for speaking out about FEMA self-interest policies. FEMA restricts the employees from providing information as to where people can find help from volunteer and other resources, Help get this information out to these needy Mississippians.
