Update from the ATSDR concerning PFAS

Posted on: May 7th, 2021 by jwilson

From the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR):

Hello to you all!  Happy spring 2021. In the past, you have reached out to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR)/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with health questions about exposures to  per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in drinking water near the Naval Air Warfare Center Warminster and Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove in Bucks and Montgomery Counties, PA. Here is another update on the work both ATSDR and Pennsylvania Department of Health (PADOH) are doing related to PFAS in your community.  Our intent is to continue to provide updates to you on the public health side via this email group from time to time.  If for any reason you would not like to receive these emails from me, please just let me know and I will remove you from our email distribution list.

  1. Today, ATSDR released our final Toxicological Profile (Tox Profile) for Perfluoroalkyls (PFAS). Tox Profiles are a compilation of toxicological information on a given hazardous substance. ATSDR’s Tox Profile on Perfluoroalkyls includes finalized Minimal Risk Levels health screening values for PFOA, PFOS, PFHxS, and PFNA. The MRLs in this final profile release were not revised or changed from the MRLs in the previous draft profile posted for public comment. Here are the related Internet links – PFAS Tox Profile (https://wwwn.cdc.gov/TSP/ToxProfiles/ToxProfiles.aspx?id=1117&tid=237), PFAS ToxFAQs (https://wwwn.cdc.gov/TSP/ToxFAQs/ToxFAQsDetails.aspx?faqid=1116&toxid=237), and PFAS Tox Guide (https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxguides/toxguide-200.pdf).
  2. Please note, the next US Navy/Air Guard virtual public Willow Grove Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meeting will be on 5/19/21 at 6 pm (https://www.bracpmo.navy.mil/brac_bases/northeast/reserve_base_willow_grove.html). Connectivity info TBD.
  3. Please continue to visit  the RTI and the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PADOH) national PFAS Multi-site Health Study website (https://papfas.rti.org/) for updates and sign up for emails related to the ongoing study work in Bucks and Montgomery Counties, Pennsylvania! Under the community engagement tab, you can find links for recordings to previous community public meetings (including the most recent one on 3/25/21) and a community video testimonial. I will be in touch again when study recruitment begins later this year.
  4. ATSDR published an FR notice inviting public comment thru 6/4/21 on our proposed viral illnesses and PFAS investigation (https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2021/04/05/2021-06882/proposed-data-collection-submitted-for-public-comment-and-recommendations). This will be a self-reported questionnaire-based effort that will involve community members that had PFAS blood testing as part of previous ATSDR investigations. The title of this project is “Evaluating the Association between Serum Concentrations of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) and Symptoms and Diagnoses of Selected Acute Viral Illnesses.” The proposed study will examine the relationship between PFAS serum levels and susceptibility to certain acute viral illnesses, including but not limited to COVID-19. I will share more information as it becomes available.

If you have any questions about these health activities, please feel free to contact PADOH (717-787-3350, env.health.concern@pa.gov).

First Female Sergeant in 50 Year History of Department

(WARRINGTON, Pa) – Warrington Township Police Department is pleased to announce that Jessica Bloomingdale has been promoted to the rank of Sergeant.  She is the first female police officer to be promoted to Sergeant in the 50-year history of the Warrington Township Police Department.

Sergeant Bloomingdale is a 2003 graduate of the Delaware County Police Academy and began her career with the Warrington Township Police Department in 2005.  From 2009-2013, she worked in the department’s Detective Division. In 2009, Sergeant Bloomingdale became a member of the Bucks County Critical Incident Stress Management Team. This team consists of peer support personnel who help first responders deal with traumatic events they have faced while on duty.  In 2011, she received certification as a Municipal Police Officer Education and Training Commission Instructor.  This commission was established in 1974 to establish certification and training standards for police officers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Sergeant Bloomingdale is one of three people in the Warrington Township Police Department to have earned this certification.

“Sergeant Bloomingdale has worked very hard for this well-deserved promotion and has clearly demonstrated her potential to do great things for the department,” said Warrington Township Police Chief Daniel Friel. “I wish her great success and look forward to working with her in her new role.”

Mark Lomax, member, Warrington Township Board of Supervisors and Board Liaison, Warrington Township Police Department, remarked, “We have excellent men and women police officers serving the residents and businesses of Warrington Township. Sergeant Bloomingdale has exemplified what it means to be a police officer. Her training, on-the-job experience and demonstrated leadership skills facilitated her to rise to the top of the promotion list for Sergeant and subsequent promotion to that rank by the Chief of Police. On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, we are very proud of Jessica and look forward to her continued growth as an officer and leader.”

Throughout her career, Sergeant Bloomingdale has assisted local and county agencies (Bucks DA’s Office/Detectives), the Attorney General’s Office, and the FBI, in both drug and criminal matters. She has also taught courses at Temple University Municipal Police Academy and the National Park Service Police Academy. Since 2015, Sergeant Bloomingdale has worked as a deputy with the Federal Government as part of the Bucks/Montgomery Counties Safe Street FBI Task Force. Since 2015, she has been a member of the Bucks County South Central Emergency Response Team, Hostage Negotiator Unit, and became a unit Team Leader in 2018.  Also in 2018, Sergeant Bloomingdale created and currently manages the Warrington Police Department K9 Unit’s Facebook page, where she helps with fundraisers for the K9 Unit Fund and is a “Work Mom” to police dogs Murphy and Jolie.

Outside of work, Sergeant Bloomingdale has volunteered with the Liberty USO unit at Philadelphia International Airport and currently volunteers at her children’s schools. She is married and has two children and two dogs. In her spare time, she enjoys RV camping, traveling, photography and cycling.
