Strong gas smell filling the cafeteria, evacuate the building.
EVACUATE alert initiated at 9:07 a.m. by Site Admin (Principal) Marlo Lassider. Location Main Building - 1st Floor
9:07 a.m. (Principal): We have a strong odor of gas that was outside but can now be smelled inside the cafeteria, so out of extreme caution we are having everybody go outside.
9:08 a.m. (Assistant Principal): I’m on my way.
9:09 a.m. (Security): This is Juliette O’Hara from security. Do you want the fire department? Your Henry Spencer, your SRO is on his way now.
9:10 a.m. (Teacher 1): I am home today, but I showed my sub how DIR-S work on my desktop before I left.
9:13 a.m. (Teacher 2): We have Burton Guster and Shaun Spencer, the volunteer parents, with us.
9:26 a.m. (Teacher 3): I checked in on the offsite button, but my students and I are on a trip. I will be monitoring here on DIR-S
9:42 a.m. (Principal): We are having all students go to Despereaux Middle School where parents will be picking up students.
With such a large school and so many people in so many different places, DIR-S made this entire ordeal much more manageable than it previously might have been. Thanks to the communication medium provided by DIR-S, the situation was handled in an orderly manner, and all students, faculty, and volunteers made it home safe and responders got the gas smell taken care of.
