All staff and students have been evacuated from a Fadden preschool after an electrical fault triggered a fire alarm this morning (20 September).

Around 8:40 am, firefighters responded to an automatic fire alarm in the preschool unit at Fadden Primary School, which was triggered by an electrical fault.

All staff and students in the preschool unit have been evacuated, and the children will spend the day at the primary school.

The ACTF&R HAZMAT crew have conducted atmospheric monitoring and air ventilation operations and ensured the area is safe.

Fire crews are standing by to ensure the area remains safe while the power is being isolated.

ESA confirmed there is no risk to the public or those at the school.
