Waters Announces Medical Exams for Delta Fuel Dump Families

 

LOS ANGELES – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40), Congresswoman Nanette Barragan (CA-44), and Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (CA-38), announced the location of several community clinics that are providing medical evaluations to their constituents who may have been exposed to jet fuel or fumes as a result of the January 14 Delta Airlines Flight #89 fuel dump, which released 15,000 gallons of jet fuel on local schools and residential areas across Southeast Los Angeles County. 

 

“I am extremely concerned about the health and wellbeing of our community in the aftermath of the Delta Airlines jet fuel dump. Some children and school personnel received assessments by first responders, but none were taken to a medical center for full examination. As we continue to monitor and investigate the full impact of the Delta fuel dump, I encourage all local residents who may have been impacted to come forward and receive medical evaluations without delay,” said Congresswoman Maxine Waters.  

 

Jet fuel or fume exposure can cause respiratory irritation, nausea, headaches, dizziness, and skin and eye irritation. Families who may have been exposed to jet fuel or fumes as a result of the Delta Airlines Flight #89 fuel dump can receive health screenings at the following health clinics:
