HUDSON, Ohio — School Bus Safety Co. is supporting National School Bus Safety Week by offering a series of public service announcements (PSAs) and a safety poster at no charge.

The training company created five PSAs to illustrate the dangers of illegally passing stopped school buses. The videos can be requested, viewed, or downloaded on the School Bus Safety Co. website.

“Safety is everyone's responsibility,” said Jeff Cassell, president of School Bus Safety Co., “and that is why [the National Association for Pupil Transportation’s] 2017 School Bus Safety Week campaign #StopOnRed is so important.”

In another effort to promote safety, School Bus Safety Co. is offering its “Vision, Mission & Values” poster, which details practices that drivers should follow and those that they shouldn’t. The company previously gave out 300 hard copies of the poster over a three-week period. It is now available as a free PDF by filling out the form here.
