Evacuation drill

September 29, 2012
Weirton Daily Times
Students from Brooke High School gathered near colored flags designated for the three centers in which the school is divided during an evacuation drill held Friday morning by the school and the Brooke County Office of Emergency Management. Students and staff walked about a mile from the school to the Dollar General Market lot to simulate how they would be evacuated in the event of a fire, natural gas leak or other threat to the school. Handicapped students and staff were transported by bus to the site. The students left school property in 15.5 minutes, with the first students arriving at the lot in less than 10 minutes. John Zumpetta, the school's video production teacher, filmed the drill from atop the Follansbee Volunteer Fire Department's ladder truck. Also participating in the drill were the Brooke County Sheriff's Department, Brooke County Ambulance Service and Wellsburg Volunteer Fire Department. -- Warren Scott
