“Cancer Fire Station 5”

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

   To: Governor Gavin Newsom, Mayor Sam Liccardo of San Jose Local, State and Federal Representatives of Santa Clara County, California and Council Members of San Jose, CA.

The firefighters of San Jose, station #5 are there ready and waiting to be relocated to a non-toxic - workplace immediately. It only takes you to make it happen. A safe location away from the toxic dump they live under now.

Don't let them fall through the cracks, make a positive change in their lives for the better. The firefighters do plenty for society and do not ask for anything in return.

Make the right choice for them today in the name of human rights. Firefighters need to be offered a form of presumptive legislation and fire records should not be destroyed after 7 years.

They should be held forever. They should not lose their job benefits for speaking up against unhealthy conditions they work/live under. People are shocked to find that we don’t have any kind of coverage for firemen/paramedics and would be embarrassed to find out their state doesn’t stand behind their firefighters/paramedics, but we will.

SCIENTIFIC PROOF AND SOURCES: I checked The State Water Resources Control Board’s Geotracker database and found the site is listed. Here are the addresses for the Geotracker database and also a direct link to the information for San Jose Fire Station #5:

There were two underground storage tanks on the site that had contained gasoline and diesel and the Santa Clara County Department of Environmental Health has been overseeing a fuel leak investigation at this site for 20 years.

You can find the investigation work plans and reports and other site-related documents on the Geotracker database under the “Site Maps/Documents” tab and you can also access site-related documents on Santa Clara County’s website.
