Alarms sound over mold at Jasper fire station


       City of Jasper firefighters  split the cost of an air quality test for the station on Burton Street after suspecting mold, and after saying the city would not conduct a test. 

The results, which were sent to the Progress last week, show elevated spore counts and suggests problems in certain areas of the station need to be remedied. 

A Jasper firefighter said, last fall they suspected the environment was unsafe and purchased a test kit from Home Depot that showed mold in the attic area. They gave this to their chief, who then gave it to a city official on October 14, he said.
