A Damaged Gas Line is Affecting some Mississauga Schools
A damaged gas line has prompted authorities to call for a “shelter in place” at two Mississauga schools.
Shortly before 12:30 p.m., Peel police announced that they were on scene at 1560 Bloor Street East to respond to gas line damage. The line was struck prior to their arrival.
Police have said that evacuation is not required, but St. Alfred’s and Brian W Fleming schools are currently instituting a “shelter in place.”
Typically, “shelter in place” means taking refuge in a safe room (perhaps one with few or no windows).
Ideally, no one will leave the safe space until the repair has been completed or it is safe to do so.
Schools will remain in 'shelter in place' until gas line repaired. Schools are St. Alfred's and Brian W Fleming ps.— Peel Regional Police (@PeelPoliceMedia) December 1, 2016
