FEMA Blasted Again

An AP story appearing on revealed that FEMA did not act swiftly enough when alerted of the significant formaldehyde problem in the trailers it was distributing. According to a new report from the Homeland Security Department Inspector General, FEMA was aware of dramatically high levels of formaldehyde in the trailers as early as October, 2005, just a month or so after Katrina and Rita, but failed to do anything about the problem for a year. Clark Stevens, a FEMA spokesman, said the agency agreed with the findings and went on to say that FEMA "has already made great progress" to ensure its trailers and mobile homes are safe.
