ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR
POCAHONTAS COUNTY SCHOOLS
The 2022-2023 Asbestos Management Plan for Pocahontas County Schools is available for review at each school and the Central Office. The Asbestos Management Plan includes inspections that were conducted by EPA accredited personnel and a management plan established for each building as needed.
Pocahontas County Schools does not have a friable asbestos material within any facility. Friable asbestos is asbestos material that can allow particles of asbestos fibers to become airborne. Thus, our schools are free of this type of asbestos material that may cause a health hazard.
The types of material found within Pocahontas County Schools are in the form of floor tile, transite board and vinyl floor covering. These products are non-friable asbestos materials and can easily be managed through proper planning without creating any health hazards. All buildings which contain these non-friable products will be assessed every six months and inspected on a three year cycle by an accredited inspector.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact Pocahontas County High School and speak with Darin McKenney, Maintenance Supervisor, at 304-799-6564 extension 5237 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
