And that the water damage has left visible evidence that mold may be present within the fire station.
"We’ve known about the leaks for some time, we weren’t aware of --I guess, the severity of, or the possibility of the severity of the mold or mildew, we knew that there were probably was something present, but not the fact it was possible that it could have been puting the health of our employees at risk”, said Jason Collier, Deputy Chief of Meridian Fire Dept.
