Little excitement at the Elementary School today. A brass fitting split in one of our HVAC systems causing a coolant leak. This caused our fire alarm to activate and we evacuated the school. The leak has been isolated and the building has been ventilated. All kinds of excitement and we are glad our systems work to keep everyone safe! Have a great day!
