Empie Park WFD

Finally the WFD/City of Wilmington sees fit to destroy the mold-ridden station at Empie Park. The study was released well over a year ago and it was known by city officials before then!! The public needs an explanation through an investigative reporter as to why this took so long...date specific. There was a problem at the Wrightsboro School and it was closed within weeks. Complete disregard for the city fire-fighters and EMS technicians housed there. I am not a fire-fighter nor related to one....just a citizen!!
