North Dakota tribal member questions FEMA trailers

Denseith, North Dakota (AP) July 2010

A member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa is questioning whether trailers and mobile homes through the Federal Emergency Management Agency are safe.

The safety of FEMA travel trailers and mobile homes has been brought into question in other parts of the country, with claims over exposure to the chemical formaldehyde. The dispute has been the subject of lawsuits.

Delvin Cree of Dunseith says some tribal members on the reservation are living in the travel trailers and mobile homes, and some tribal members are renting the travel trailers to people in the oil fields.

U.S. General Services Administration officials say the FEMA trailers are intended for recreational use and not for housing. They say tribal officials were made aware of that.
