So, let me get this straight. Two people are out of jobs for protecting the public from possible fluoride poisoning due to badly corroded fluoride equipment??? Just a few minutes exposure caused burning eyes, noses and skin in workers, but these two administrators lost jobs for protecting the public and their water. A fluoride error in Hooper Bay, Alaska, killed a man. Other fluoride errors have also resulted in deaths and severe illnesses. It seems like the city management is more interested in protecting fluoride than protecting the public.
