Epsom school evacuated after oil spill in boiler room
According to Principal Patrick Connors the evacuation was done as a precautionary measure, and all the students were transported to the Cornerstone Christian Academy, located down the road, once the smell of oil began to permeate the school.
“We wanted to be extremely cautious, especially with an odor. We want to get the students far away from that. We have practice protocols for this,” Connors said.
“The school has a plan in place worked out with the police and fire departments, and we were able to evacuate the students in 15 to 18 minutes,” Yeaton said.
Connors said that once the decision was made to evacuate the students, the emergency phone system was used to notify all parents. To make sure parents knew of the situation, Connors and secretaries Wendy Burns and Stephanie Colvin stayed behind after everyone else was evacuated to answer the phones and keep parents informed.
