Augusta Fire Station Battles Mold And Forces Move

Augusta , GA -Health concerns have partially shut down an Augusta fire hall.

Firefighters at Station 18 on Windsor Spring Road are locked out of their upstairs sleeping quarters because of mold.

The problem was leaking duct work from the air conditioner, and that’s been fixed. Now, the mold will have to be removed. Until that happens, though, firefighters will not spend the night at the station.

“They can’t sleep in that bedroom. We don’t want them to sleep in that bedroom until we correct this action so, right now, in the daytime they can be down the stairs and operate in that station. At night, they’ll go a mile and a half down the road to Station 7. Engine 18 will still respond to all the calls in that area at night until we can get this repaired,” said Fire Chief Christopher James.

Chief James says, at this time, he doesn’t have a timetable for removing the mold or how much it will cost. He says, in the meantime, the plan is to create new sleeping quarters downstairs at the station so fire crews can stay the night.

Mycotoxin Test..Tests for Mold Sickness

The Facts About Mycotoxins and Mycotoxin Tests, Having a Blood test for Mold, Blood Tests for Mold Sickness and Lab Test for Mold.

Mycotoxins are poisons produced by fungus or what is commonly known as “Mold”. Not all species of mold produce pathogens (disease causing elements). However, many species of fungi are known as pathogenic and produce toxic substances mycotoxins being one of them.

When a person mistakenly eats an unknown species of toadstool or mushroom (Fungi / Mold), they may become ill, hallucinate, or in the worst case scenario die. These affects are caused by the mycotoxins (poisons) contained in the toadstool or mushroom. To say that a person could not become ill from inhaling or ingesting aerosolized mycotoxins produced from fungus or mold is a misnomer.

 Mycotoxins are known as “secondary metabolites”, a nonviable (non-living) chemical component produced by 1 of over 190 known species of fungi that produce mycotoxins. The most common mycotoxins are as follows:

·         Aflatoxin

·         Ochratoxin

·         Trichotecenes

After mold releases their spore’s mycotoxins may enter the human body one of four ways:
