Has FEMA replaced any trailers as a result of complaints about formaldehyde in travel trailers?
FEMA continues to replace those trailers where applicants have requested a different unit. As of June 15, 2007, FEMA has replaced 57 units. Some of the households complaining about formaldehyde increased the ventilation in the unit or decided against FEMA’s offer to swap their unit, and others have identified more permanent housing solutions, resulting in unit deactivation.
