Review scheduled for failed evacuation drill

Print More

There will be a meeting in Brattleboro on Wednesday to try to figure out what went wrong with a mock emergency evacuation last week. Some of the buses that were supposed to report to area schools to carry schoolchildren out of the mock evacuation zone never arrived. That left nearly a thousand students without transportation.

The evacuation is a test of how the area would respond in case of a chemical or nuclear emergency, such as one that could occur at the nearby Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant. The private meeting will include representatives from the school district, the town, Vermont Emergency Management and a private bus company.
