Local residents air concerns at Fort Detrick biosafety expo By Sylvia Carignan Frederick News-Post May 1, 2014Fort Detrick's research community took questions from a concerned public at the first Public Safety Expo and Open House, held Wednesday evening at Hood College.
About 50 local residents came to the event in the first two hours. The Containment Laboratory Community Advisory Committee sponsored the expo and invited local residents to come and ask Frederick County and Fort Detrick officials about their research labs and biosafety issues.
Lillian Herz, who has lived in Frederick since 1978, said she worries about the new U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases building, currently under construction.
"I can see it from my kitchen window," she said.Herz said it is "a huge mistake" to build that facility because the pathogens and chemicals that could be held there may be released into the environment if disaster strikes.
