Naval Air Station Meridian claims video

Situated 11 miles northeast of Meridian, Mississippi, in Kemper County and Lauderdale County, this military base was set in 1957 and is one of the 2 jet strike pilot training facilities of the U.S. Navy. Naval Air Station Meridian is still in use nowadays. Initially, the military installation was named Naval Auxiliary Air Station and was commissioned in 1961. The military base is currently under the control of Navy Regional Southeast. Like other 700 military installations throughout our country, Naval Air Station Meridian is heavily contaminated with PFAS, a group of toxic chemicals whose presence greatly endangers the health of everyone who stays there. If you developed a health problem as a consequence of PFAS exposure that occurred on this military base, please contact us to recover financial compensation.

Claim Application

According to records, AFFF, the fire suppressant that is responsible for PFAS contamination, has been used on the premises of Naval Air Station Meridian, which means that these chemicals are present in the environment of the military base. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry stated that it would continue providing technical support to the U.S. Navy with regard to the mitigation of PFAS contamination on Naval Air Station Meridian. Because AFFF contains PFAS, these hazardous chemicals are certainly present in this military installation.

What toxic agents are lurking on Naval Air Station Meridian?

Naval Air Station Meridian is a Superfund site at the moment, meaning that the Environmental Protection Agency is carrying out cleanup activities on the premises of the military base to remove PFAS, as well as other contaminants of concern that are present there. However, PFAS are the main toxic agents lurking on this military base, and their existence is enough to endanger the health of members of the military and civilians who are staying on the site.

As mentioned above, the source of PFAS on military bases such as Naval Air Station Meridian is the use of AFFF by military firefighters and trainees for Class B fires. With the employment of AFFF comes the release of PFAS in the environment, where they persist forever, as they do not break down. It is only by virtue of the cleanup efforts of organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency that these chemicals can be removed from the military base.
