DGH Practice Bus Evacuations Took Place on Thursday, October 16th
Bus evacuation training and a bus evacuation practice took place for all classes and students yesterday (Thursday, October 16th). Stock Transportation, our bus company, conducted the training and evacuations. Students watched a video explaining bus safety and evacuations and had an opportunity to ask questions to the Stock trainer. Students then went outside and participated in a practice bus evacuation. Students did this as a class.
In order to make the bus evacuation more realistic, students will be conducting bus evacuations on their actual bus (as opposed to with only their class) in the next few weeks. During the evacuation students practice exiting from the rear of the bus – with designated older students helping younger students evacuate properly.
While the likelihood of a bus evacuation happening is not high, it is important to practice “just in case.”
Thank you to Mrs. MacEachern for organizing.
