School bus accident exercise

Event will teach drivers what to do during crisis


Kern County Fire, in cooperation with California Association of School Transportation Officials, and California Highway Patrol, will be hosting an exercise to help prepare Kern County school bus drivers for a major incident involving a school bus accident with multiple passengers on board.

The event will have an accident scene involving a school bus and passenger vehicle. Drivers will be able to see first-hand a realistic scenario walking through emergency procedures during the incident, providing care, and passing essential information on to 911 dispatchers and responding emergency personnel.

During a major incident many different agencies will be involved and communication is key. The goal is to have a seamless emergency response to a major school bus accident, providing working knowledge of Kern County’s emergency system to ensure a positive outcome. 

The exercise  will be on Nov. 3 at 5642 Victor Street, at 8 a.m.
