Many residents have expressed concern after finding that men wearing protective clothing had been posting warning signs relating to asbestos around the neighbourhood. The residents are all locals from the Rosa Parks Road neighborhood in Palm Springs.

According to reports officials are now planning to address the concerns of the worried residents. Officials from the City Hall of Palm Springs, California are looking to discuss the issue with residents to try and alleviate their fears and concerns over possible asbestos contamination in area.

It was last April that residents spotted the men wearing hazardous material suits posting warning signs about asbestos, and at that time many questioned the men about what was going on. However, they claim that they were given no information and were simply told to leave.

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance and is known to lead to a range of health problems through long terms or high level exposure, and this includes serious respiratory problems, scarring of the lungs, and a form of deadly cancer called mesothelioma.
