With National School Bus Safety Week approaching (Oct. 17-21 this year), School Bus Safety Co. is offering free training materials to help pupil transporters protect students.

School districts and contractors can request a free copy of the company’s new “Danger Zones” driver training program. Jeff Cassell, president of School Bus Safety Co., said that the program was completely recreated and is “far better than the original program created seven years ago.”

School Bus Safety Co.’s offer also includes the five public service announcement (PSA) videos that the company created to illustrate the dangers of illegally passing stopped school buses.

Also, school bus operations can get a free copy of the company's “Vision, Mission & Values” safety poster.

“This poster details the 15 practices we want drivers to follow and also explains the behaviors we do not want practiced,” Cassell said.

To request a free copy of the “Danger Zones” program and the PSAs, go here. To include the free poster, ask for it in the notes section at the end of the form.
