I have contacted the company hired to do the cleanup of the apartment where Mr. Duncan stayed. The owner was very courteous and openly discussed with
me what he knew about the case. I apologized in advance for taking up his time. I suspected that he was getting flooded with calls. His phone has
in fact been ringing off the hook and he's trying to remain focused on keeping his crew safe.
I let him know that many people appreciate what he is doing from day to day (not just Ebola).
My intent of the phone call was to determine what he knew about the cleanup that occurred outside and to determine the correct agency for a TORA
request. He said that he had seen the channel 8 footage as well but he wasn't sure. I let him know my concern about the way it was handled. He
mentioned that isn't proper procedure for handling hazardous bio-material but reiterated that he wasn't sure that they were in fact cleaning
Last night I made a list of 4 different agencies for potential contacts:
2.) Texas Department of State Health Services
3.) Dallas County Health and Human Services
4.) Dallas County (General Office)
I managed to get a better contact within the county and I have already called and left a voice mail. I would like to request the information
informally which would yield a quicker response than the 10 days they have to respond to a TORA request. I called them this morning, but I haven't
received a phone call back.
I will keep people posted. I have an over-arching concern that the city, state, and federal government does not have a system in place to handle the
problems associated with a disease like this. Admittedly these aren't easy problems to solve, but getting reliable information out quickly is key.
