The fire station building in the city of Donalsonville, Georgia, is experiencing mold and asbestos problems.
A survey, conducted this February by the Alternative Construction & Environmental Solutions, showed the evidence of mold growth as well as high carbon monoxide levels in the building. The mold spores were found in many indoor areas including the training room, sleeping area and the dining area.
The city authorities are weighing options on how to remediate these problems. Meanwhile, the sleeping area for the on-duty fire fighters has been shifted into a camper behind the fire station building.
According to the city manager Darrell Hampton, the fire Chief Travis Brooks is working on a remediation plan which will then be submitted to Mayor Dan Ponder.
