LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Lee County Public Schools safety personnel and transportation personnel (including bus drivers and attendants,) along with Cape Coral Fire Rescue wil conduct school bus rescue safety training at the North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts Thursday morning.
As the start of the new school year is here, District safety and transportation personnel, along with Cape Coral Fire Rescue, will be conducting a "Smoke-Filled Bus Drill."
The drill will involve placing mannequins on the bus to fill the role of passengers, then the bus will be filled with smoke to simulate an emergency situation. The goal is to hone the skills of District staff by simulating a real fire emergency. The idea is to prepare bus drivers, attendants and safety personnel for this type of emergency and it's part of the overall safety training to ensure students are transported to and from school in a safe and efficient manner.
