It's Hillary's new strategy. Only brain dead zombies can vote for her at this point.

I know, I'm sorry. It's just... well with everything going on, hard to get out of that mode.

It appears as though this may have been an accident/incident at the Logistical Readiness Center.

Source.

If the AF is like the army then that building is like laundry and cooks, etc. So chemicals (potentially weapons, but doubtful as they are nrmally point to point transported) present.

If I remember correctly 2045 is a building on the flight line, could be a hanger, office building/deployment center or MX building. So could be anything really that caused the contamination.

After a bit more digging its the building that houses a parts warehouse and associated supply offices for the flight line. So it really could be anything from inside the building or contamination from the flight line/fuel truck storage next door.

This is not good.

At the main gate, more than half of those affected hospitalized, and no word as to exactly what happened?

Bad feeling about this.

Here is a map of Fairchild from the AAFES website. 2045 the building in question is on the flight line near the large parking ramp.

Fairchild AFB

The building is to the right of the big building 2050.

Off topic: it was far to easy to find a base map with real building numbers and base facilities listed. They did keep the OPS stuff off the map but still gives a bunch away.

Update:
According to the USAF, the irritant was caused by multiple air fresheners placed in a confined space.[Source]



The unknown irritant that sickened 24 people at Fairchild Air Force Base Thursday has been identified as air freshener.

Multiple air fresheners were placed in a confined area and when the HVAC system came on it “caused irritation” that resulted in a hazardous materials response by emergency responders, according to FAFB news release.

The incident caused the evacuation of the Building 2045, occupied by the Logistics Readiness Squadron. The 24 personnel sickened by the fumes were treated on base, at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center and Deaconess Medical Center. All were treated and released within hours.

The building has been reopened and everyone is back at work, the Air Force said.

Yes folks, air freshners contain irritants. You know what else can be an irritant (look at the MSDS) sea sand.

Lesson1: Irritants are not always anything sinister.
Lesson 2: Don't trust untrained (in chemicals) idiots with chemicals
