Guilford County Schools to start evacuation drills
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Schools in Guilford County will reportedly begin practicing evacuation drills in an effort to prepare students for emergencies like chemical spills and train derailments.
The Greensboro News & Record reports such drills require students and staff to go to a specific location off a school’s campus.
Greggory Slate, an administrator with Guilford County Schools’ safety office, tells the News & Record that parents would pick their children up from the evacuation site as opposed to the school in certain cases.
The plans come after weeks of Board of Education committee meetings concerning ways to improve school security in the district.
