I woke up this morning with swollen eyes and throat, hardly able to talk after breathing the toxic smoke from yesterday’s fire. So I called the EPA and I’m waiting for a call back.
Then I called the PA Department of Environmental
Destruction Protection, and they quickly said, “We don’t handle that.”
So it’s not under your jurisdiction when someone stores toxic material in an unsafe manner that exposes all these people?
“No, you want the Philadelphia Air Management office.”
I call. A woman takes all the information and says someone from the engineer’s office will call me back.
In the meantime, I’m praying that this rain gets here soon. Maybe it will make it easier to breathe.
