Physiology Assignment

There is a problem that seems to be surrounding our community that is having an effect on the health of our neighbors. Our community is new and we have grown to become something like one big family so this problem will take its toll on all of us. There is something around us causing our neighbors including our children to get sick, because of the unknown circumstances this not a good thing for any of us. The first thought that I had was that the developer of the community had done something wrong and caused the problem. Because of the fact that this situation will affect me as well, I decided to do some research into the problem and this is when I discovered that the problem came from something on part of the gas supplier for our community. As a community we must unite and stick together so we can get this problem taken care of before it causes more illnesses to our families. While conducting my research I visited a few of my neighbors along with an inspector who knows more about these type of situations, he conducted several tests on our homes and concluded that it had to be something else besides the construction of the homes. This inspector informed me that we should perform other tests like maybe on the gas lines that had been put in. After the meeting with the inspector me and several neighbors met up because they were also concerned about this problem and together we decided that we would take a trip to visit the gas company and express our concerns so that perhaps they could look into the problem as well by having one of their professionals to come out and meet with us. Once we visited the gas company the next day several of their employees came out and started performing all kinds of different tests. It took them several days but it was found that the pipes which had been installed were not equipped and therefore caused vapors to escape, the vapors were not strong enough to smell but we were inhaling them which was causing the illnesses that had taken over our community. After getting this information, I typed a memo so that everyone in my community would come out and be informed as well about what had been discovered. During this meeting we came to the conclusion that we all would sign a petition hoping it would get the problem resolved immediately, we gave the petition to the gas company which was accompanied with other letters as well from families who had already fallen ill. When served with the letters they were also informed that legal action would be taken against them because they were responsible for insuring our safety when installing the pipes. The gas company took no time at all correcting the problem and in the process of them doing so we received in writing, that because of their negligence they would be responsible for everyone’s medical expenses and everyone would be compensated generously. Once the problem had been taken care of and they planned to compensate us there was no further action needed. The community had solved this problem by sticking together and we were all pleased with the outcome, especially those big fat checks and the discounts on our gas services. If a community can come together things could possibly get taken care of without all the legal hassles but if the gas company had refused to cooperate it would have been smart to go forward with legal action which may have meant more money for us. By them owning up to it, everyone involved received the same compensation but the families who had gotten sick received a little more which was alright with us. The families that were sick got the care they needed and the community went back to normal.
