Re: Kiln Fumes/Safety

Hi Courtney, Honestly, I don't see how the fire marshall has let this
go. It would be a violation of code in any state, I would think. Our
school now has a guy that does air quality checks- maybe there is
someone in your district that does these as well. Have you talked to
your principal? I am sure if he/she knew that these fumes are toxic, no
matter how vented, he would want this moved to a safer location for
liability sake. Just my thoughts, Betsy
