BCS Weather Hotline
Did you know there have been NO student deaths in the U.S. from a school fire since 1958? Students and staff at all our schools have fire drills monthly, ensuring that fire alarm systems are tested and working, and everyone is prepared for emergencies. The Fire Marshal inspects every school twice a year, and an independent contractor inspects all components of our fire alarm systems annually. BCS Maintenance with its licensed professionals processes over 20,000 work orders annually. Of these, most do not require permits. Of those that do, less than 1% have shown any permitting discrepancies. When errors are found, they are corrected.
