Fire department units from throughout Baltimore County were dispatched for reports of a possible chemical spill at Dulaney High School just before 0800 hours on Friday. Units arrived minutes later and were advised by school personnel that there was a chlorine-like gas coming out of a second floor bathroom. Command was established by BC11 and the Baltimore County Police Bomb Squad was then requested. The entire school was evacuated as a precaution as crews began to investigate. Once a plan was formulated to make entry and begin cleanup operations, Jacksonville AU478 and the rehab units were requested to the scene. One teacher was transported to a local hospital after suffering from dizziness. There were no other injuries. All apparatus cleared the scene in under three hours.
