The fire station on White Road near Harlem has been closed by a severe mold infestation, officials said Monday.

Columbia County officials said they were notified Monday morning of severe mold and mildew inside the temporary fire station.  

"After investigating the problem and consulting with Fire Chief Doug Cooper and Harlem City Manager Jason Rizner, it was determined that in order to reduce exposure to the odors (intensified by the extreme heat), that the firefighters should be relocated to Engine Co. No. 8 at Clary Cut Road in Harlem," a news release stated.

The move was completed late Monday afternoon, officials said.

 The service area normally covered by the White Road station will be covered by both the Clary Cut Road and Old Louisville Road fire stations, officials said.  All fire and first responder services will be provided in a timely manner from these locations.

I wonder if this was also known about before the election. Maybe the commissioners can use it as a reason not to approve the tax cut.

Because exposure to toxic mold can sicken and kill you? Is that a good enough reason for you, speeding?

Why didn't the Chronicle

Why didn't the Chronicle follow up on the Mold problems at The Medical College of Georgia?

Patients, visitors, employees were all at risk. Multiple Mold remediation projects have been completed and documented sick employees but not one peep from the Chronicle.

The old Sears Annex building, within the Hospital; the neonatal intensive care unit, the Pediatric intensive care unit, the old Long Term Care Facility which Select Specialty Occupied-8S, and multiple other spots all had mold remediation construction projects.

Here is a link to the MetroSpirit article. Check out the actual hospital sick building reports linked from the article.
