In Portland, Oregon and many other school districts throughout the United States, there is a good reason to have a fire drill / evacuation plan. Plan and simple, it saves lives. Fire swept through the Marysville Elementary School just prior to Noon on a Fall 2009 day. Fortunately, school staff members and firefighters successfully evacuated every single student from the school. While the historic school sustained heavy fire damage, no lives were lost in this fire. The Marysville Elementary School fire shows how an effective evacuation plan can protect children and teachers as well.
