False Fire Alarms Triggers Evacuation of C.T. Plunkett

Staff Reports

ADAMS, Mass. — The day at C.T. Plunkett Elementary School was interrupted Wednesday when the fire alarms unexpectedly sounded and students were evacuated to the First Congregational Church.

According to a statement released by Principal Michelle Colvin, the alarms sounded at about 8:45 a.m. and students and staff evacuated the building. Because of cold weather, the students were brought to the First Congregational Church to keep warm. There, all students were accounted for while emergency personnel determined that there were no issues inside the building.

At 9 a.m. an automated call was made to all parents informing them of the situation and shortly afterward, the students were bused back to continue to school day. The alarm company was called to inspect the system.
