In September 2020, A.M. was working as a direct care provider in an adult group home run by AIRES LLC in Southern Arizona. A residential pesticide company, Mule Mountain Pest Control, arrived one day to spray the interior of the home. A.M. refused to allow them to enter, since all of the residents were at home and Covid restrictions had shut down the day program they usually attended. They had previously sprayed (while occupied) in March 2020 and A.M as well as the residents had gotten sick with headaches and respiratory irritation. A.M. called his supervisor, who said he had to let them spray, then called DDD (Division of Developmental Disabilities) who told him to call the pest control company to find out which pesticide was being used and if it was safe to spray in an occupied building. He was sent a printout of the pesticide label via email, and it clearly stated that the building was not to be occupied, that "Patients should be removed from room prior to treatment. Room should be ventilated for 2 hr after spraying. Do not return patients to room until after ventilation." Also on the label, "Turn off air conditioners and fans and close doors and windows before treating. ..Keep area closed for 15 min. Open and ventilate the treated area before reoccupying." AIRES LLC told him that they did not care what the label said, they would be spraying anyway, and that he should just leave the house if he was worried about getting sick. The residents could not leave. A.M. immediately filed an incident report regarding the dangerous chemicals and the refusal of AIRES LLC to protect the residents from injury and illness. By law, families or responsible parties of the residents must be informed of an incident report within 24 hours. AIRES LLC refused to inform the families, so A.M. contacted them which he is entitled to do in accordance with the Principles of Caregiving Handbook published by DDD. The next day, he was sent home early from work, and the following week he was called into the corporate office where his employment was terminated. A police officer accompanied him to this meeting (at A.M.'s request) which was recorded on bodycam. Of course afterwards, a year-long campaign was undertaken to seek intervention for both his wrongful termination, and more importantly the ongoing abuse and endangerment of the residents of dozens of group homes owned by AIRES LLC. Adult Protective Services, DDD, the Attorney General's office, OSHA, Department of Agriculture, the Governor'office, the Police Department, Arizona Disability Law, State Representatives, and several other agencies and organizations were repeatedly contacted to address the situation. No one was willing to help, with the exception of the Department of Agriculture which conducted an investigation (which took several months) and issued three citations to Mule Mountain Pest Control and the applicator, but even with the acknowledgment of misuse of pesticides no other agencies were willing to hold AIRES LLC responsible, and they continue to use pesticides in occupied group homes. After over a year of inaction by so-called responsible organizations, A.M. conducted a protest across the street from the AIRES LLC corporate building, with the goal of having the director arrested and to have AIRES LLC shut down for poisoning individuals with disabilities. A police officer arrived on scene, and A.M. shared his information which was collected and organized in a binder. The officer told him he would file a report, and maybe an investigator would look at it. The following week ( Wednesday December 29), A.M. went again to protest across the street from the AIRES LLC building. Police officers showed up again, and he again gave them the pertinent information. On Thursday, December 30, a Sheriff arrived at A.M.'s home with an order to detain and transport him to a Level One behavioral health facility. Chapter 36 laws regarding involuntary commitment were not followed. He is currently being held and will stay there until a hearing sometime hopefully next week. This is all sorts of wrong, and I need any guidance and advice available. A.M. is my husband.
