“Safe Practices for Downed Power Lines,” a new training program, instructs school bus drivers and students on what to do if power lines fall on their bus. The program was developed by the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) and the School Bus Safety Co. (SBSC). According to NAPT and SBSC, many times each year, school buses are involved in accidents involving power lines falling onto the bus.
SBSC and NAPT worked with experts from the power industry to create the new training for school bus drivers and students. Officials said that the new program informs both drivers and students what to do when a bus is involved with power lines and how to safely exit the bus if they have to when they are unsure whether the line is active or not.
The programs for drivers and for students combined are available from SBSC for $199 plus shipping costs. A discounted price of $125 plus shipping is available to NAPT members.
