Description

This 14-month investigation of more than 700 public and private schools in the state of Ohio revealed that almost a third of the schools failed to comply with Ohio's Revised Code that calls for 10 fire drills each school year. In the past decade, 2,700 school fires in Ohio injured 98 people and caused more than $20.5 million worth of property damage. As a result to this investigation, number of schools failing to comply with the state's fire drill law dropped considerably.
