****School Bus Training****
Last night for this month’s training our members trained on removing patients from a school bus through emergency exits and also where battery cut off switches were in the event of an accident. Very good training for us to see how the emergency exits work, location and similarity between different manufacturers of school buses. We also covered protocols with a representative from the Sheriff’s Dept for accountability of kids in the event of an accident. Pine Lake FD will not release any kids from the bus on a scene of an accident to their parents. The kids if not injured will be transferred to another bus and bused to their school or location given by the Sheriff’s dept. This is for the safety of the kids.
Thanks to Bowen’s Bus service for allowing us to train in your buses
