Gas leak drill conducted at Braddock Middle School

April 16th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

On Tuesday, Columbia Gas of Maryland staged a drill to test the skills of its employees responding to an emergency. Unaware that it was a drill, Columbia Gas staff answered a call from Braddock Middle School claiming a possible gas leak.   Administrators at the school were aware of the drill; however, staff and students did not. After the staged emergency call was placed, staff and students at Braddock were evacuated in the same manner as they would for a fire drill. Upon arrival at the school, which had already been evacuated, staff from Columbia Gas proceeded to test their knowledge to determine the threat.   Staff and students at Braddock should be commended for their calm and timely evacuation of the school
