JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas —
The 502nd Air Base Wing has activated a new page on their website to address mold concerns at Joint Base San Antonio. Here, residents can find information on what to do if mold has damaged their property, background information on the issue and what the command is doing to remediate the matter.
“The health and well-being of our Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, and civilians at JBSA is essential,” said Brig. Gen. Laura L. Lenderman, 502nd Air Base Wing commander. “Mold in living facilities is unacceptable. To residents who have voiced their concerns and brought attention to this much needed call to action, I thank you.”
The 502nd ABW is not requiring Airmen to clean up the mold, however residents are still asked to perform their normal cleaning procedures as any resident is expected to do in their own home. The 502nd Civil Engineering Group is properly equipped to handle this responsibility and clean up impacted facilities the safest and most efficient ways possible.
Joint Base San Antonio dormitory residents are asked to raise mold issues to their leadership and if complaints are not satisfactorily addressed, residents are encouraged to go direct to the 502nd Air Base Wing Commander Brig. Gen. Lenderman through the “Feedback Fridays” program. Send your email to RandolphPublicAffairs@us.af.mil using the subject line “Feedback Fridays.”
