Transportation staff practice installing the AmbuBus kit.

The logistics of deploying converted buses during an emergency must be worked out between the school districts and their local emergency response managers, Craig said. "Is it going to be school bus drivers and EMS folks that get on the bus, or is it going to be hospital staff? All those specific issues are part of the plan that we require them to put together before we would provide them a kit, so there would be not just a resource there but also a plan on how to use that resource," he explained.
