Statement by Physicians for Social Responsibility - Los Angeles (@psrla)

The #WoolseyFire began on the property of the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory. #SSFL, a former nuclear and rocket engine testing site, is one of the most contaminated sites in the nation.

"Santa Susana Field Laboratory (#SSFL / #Rocketdyne) burned in the #WoolseyFire, threatening toxic exposures from contaminated dust, smoke, ash & soil. The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) denies risk that it created by delaying the long promised cleanup." -@PSRLA
Physicians for Social Responsibility - Los Angeles (@PSRLA) writes, "On November 10, Los Angeles Magazine ran an article claiming there was no risk related to SSFL contamination from the #Woolseyfire that we now know actually began on the #SSFL property itself."
"#WoolseyFire burned the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory (#SSFL), a former nuclear & rocket engine testing site. TV footage showed flames surrounding rocket test stands, & the fire’s progress through to #OakPark indicates that much of the toxic site burned." -@PSRLA
“We can’t trust anything that DTSC says,” said #WestHills resident Melissa Bumstead, whose young daughter has twice survived #leukemia that she blames on #SSFL and who has mapped 50 other cases of rare pediatric #cancers near the site. #WoolseyFire #SimiValley #oakparkfire
"Self-reported #map showing 50 kids w/ #cancer that I [Melissa Bumstead] know personally. Every kid shown lives within 20 miles of the Santa Susana Field Lab meltdown. Kids in color were diagnosed between 2012-2017, kids in grey were diagnosed 2010 & earlier." #WoolseyFire #SSFL
Melissa Bumstead organized a group called “Parents vs. SSFL” and launched a @Change #petition demanding full cleanup of #SSFL that has been signed by over 412,000 people.

VIDEO: Nuclear reactor accidents, including a famous partial meltdown, tens of thousands of rocket engine tests, & sloppy environmental practices have left #SSFL polluted with widespread radioactive & chemical contamination.

"Government-funded studies indicate increased #cancers for offsite populations associated with proximity to the site, and that contamination migrates offsite over #EPA levels of concern." -@PSRLA
More than a half million people live within 10 miles.

Dr. Robert Dodge, President of @PSRLA, shares the community’s concerns. “We’re talking about incredibly dangerous radionuclides and toxic chemicals such as trichloroethylene, perchlorate, dioxins and heavy metals."
#WoolseyFire #SSFL #SimiValley #VenturaCounty #SFV #LosAngeles
"These toxic materials are in #SSFL’s soil and vegetation, and when it burns and becomes airborne in smoke and ash, there is real possibility of heightened exposure for area residents.” -@PSRLA

Santa Susana Field Laboratory in #SimiHills, w/ #SFV & San Gabriel Mountains beyond to the east. The Energy Technology Engineering Center site is in the flat Area IV at lower left, w/ the Rocket Test Field Laboratory sites in the hills at the center. (Spring 2005) #WoolseyFire
Dr. Robert Dodge, President of @PSRLA, said protective measures recommended during any fire, such as staying indoors & wearing protective face masks, are even more important given risks associated w/ #SSFL’s contamination. #WoolseyFire #SimiValley #VenturaCounty #LosAngelesFire
Born & raised in #OakPark. Brookside, Medea Creek, OPHS, Agoura High, & Moorpark. Family, friends, & I went on countless hikes to China Flat in #SimiHills & throughout Santa Monica Mountains. I remember #SSFL sounds & colorful chemical skies. #WoolseyFire
Video by @Change: Melissa's daughter Grace is one of 50+ children diagnosed with rare forms of cancer, all within miles of the Santa Susana Field Lab, site of one of worst nuclear meltdowns in U.S. history.

Santa Susana Field Lab was developed in the 1940s to conduct nuclear research. In 1959 an uncontained partial meltdown of a sodium reactor caused a devastating radiation leak. It was kept secret, and only uncovered after twenty years by students at #UCLA.

"Well I'm going to go ahead and give you The Oscar. The Kardashian's made the news about the SSFL and I believe it was because you started the information. Rock on! 🗽🤘"
