HOWELL – A police investigation found that a faulty alarm sensor was the cause of an unexpected evacuation at Howell High School on May 24. The faulty alarm sensor caused a non-scheduled fire alarm, according to police.

There were 10 police units that responded to the alarm and formed a perimeter around the school, after being notified by an officer inside the school.

This unexpected evacuation caused a stir just two days after a rumored threat was made to Howell High School. On May 23, Jersey Shore Online reported that a Howell Police investigation found the rumor to be unsubstantiated, however.

Police stated that the situation was handled and students have since returned to class.
