To keep its animals safe, the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) moved all of its dogs and cats to a temporary home at 1st Mariner Arena on Monday morning. Because the shelter lies in a flood-prone part of South Baltimore, BARCS convened a team of volunteers for the emergency evacuation. In a matter of hours, they safely moved more than 100 cats and nearly that many dogs. The animals will ride out the storm at the arena.

A committee reviewing Westminster High School's emergency evacuation policy recommended adding one word to the document and urged administrators to consider purchasing equipment to assist in evacuating disabled students from the three-story building, said the school's principal, John Seaman. Seaman said the committee's only meeting, which was held Tuesday and lasted about two hours, was "contentious at times" but productive. "They were concerned about how quickly their recommendations could be implemented," he said.

ROCKVILLE -- Crew members on the MARC train that crashed last February in Silver Spring were not trained in how to help passengers in a disaster -- or even how to open emergency exits, federal investigators were told yesterday.Witnesses testifying before the National Transportation Safety Board did not speculate whether such training might have saved the 11 people who died in the wreck -- most after being trapped inside the fiery Maryland Rail Commuter service train.But the board's chairman urged the rail industry to begin teaching its crews about emergency evacuation procedures, even though it is not required by federal law."

The small trash can fire at Westminster High in December was extinguished in a matter of minutes, but the debates it sparked have persisted for months. In the weeks after someone set the fire in the second-floor boys' restroom of the three-story building, parents complained about the school's emergency evacuation policy, which requires any student unable to walk out on his or her own to be moved to the nearest smoke-free stairwell, where the child and an adult are expected to wait for firefighters.

WASHINGTON -- As images from Rita and Katrina showed, American cities are strategically vulnerable to evacuation in times of crisis. Residents get stuck in traffic and run out of gas, grinding any mass departure to a standstill. What makes this situation so ironic is that the interstate system that Congress bought in the late 1950s was intended to enhance the evacuation potential of American cities during the threat of nuclear attack in the Cold War. This boondoggle of one-dimensional transportation was sold to Congress by a cartel of oil, automobile, bus, road construction and finance companies.
