Charges of felony child endangerment were filed against three officers of Firm Build, the now-defunct, non-profit construction training company. The charges stem from an allegation that they used teenage student workers to remove asbestos containing material on a building project at the former Castle Air Force Base. The students were not advised of the presence of asbestos or provided appropriated safety equipment training. Asbestos can cause serious lung problems and cancer, according to the U.S. Department of Human Services.
