School Bus Evacuation Training
Throughout Ontario, School Bus Safety Week is scheduled for October 20 to 24, 2014.
The Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium (SCSTC) reminds all drivers to be extra cautious in the vicinity of school buses and in school bus loading and un-loading zones.
During school bus safety week, the SCSTC, in partnership with our School Vehicle Operators, will be offering School Bus Evacuation Training for all home-to-school transported students.
School vehicle drivers will be educating students on how to safely evacuate a school vehicle in an emergency situation.
Training will include how to safely evacuate the school vehicle using:
- the front door;
- the rear door;
- both the front and rear doors;
- other evacuation options.
Training will also confirm that the school vehicle driver remains in charge during any evacuation situation and that students are to move away from the vehicle to a safe location designated by the driver following an evacuation.
Additional information regarding school bus safety and school bus evacuations is available through the Ministry of Transportation Ontario’s website at: http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/safety/schoolbus/smarts.shtml
