Fire Chief Alan Schram, said, "The fire
department crew goes to schools with students
from K-3 and we watch as students leave the
school on their fire drill. We are looking for good
evacuation processes, and timing on how fast
they can get out safely. As well, we are making
sure the administration staff are doing their
sweeps, checking all the rooms to ensure all the
students have made it out, and closing all the
doors behind them. "
"All schools do a good job at getting everyone
out to safety because they all practice their fire
drills shortly after school starts to ensure all
students know the drill and what they need to
do," said Shram.
