Rep. Young Kim Visits Tustin Hangar

Dec 18, 2023 | Health, Press Releases

Tustin, CA – On Friday, U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-40) urged the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide a public notice evaluating and summarizing all the air quality monitoring and sampling data from the Tustin Hangar site and its plans moving forward.

Rep. Kim was joined in sending the letter by the Orange County Congressional delegation, including Reps. Lou Correa (CA-46), Michelle Steel (CA-45), Mike Levin (CA-49), Katie Porter (CA-47), and Linda Sanchez (CA-38).

“Although the EPA, Navy, and City of Tustin’s air quality monitoring and sampling data results show no detected airborne asbestos fibers during the 24-day hangar fire, there is growing public concern over the long-term health effects of the Tustin hangar fire. The absence of official information creates conditions for alarm, misinformation, and accusation,” the members wrote.
