School Bus Evacuation Training

Elementary & Secondary Schools

School bus evacuation practice is an important safety measure that we promote along with the Ministry Transportation Ontario for students who ride the school bus to and from school daily and for students who may ride buses on field trips. During an emergency situation on the school bus, every second is important in ensuring our students are well prepared and safe. Our students need to know and practice school bus evacuation in case there is an emergency on the school bus.

  • The objective of a school bus evacuation is to get the children off the bus safely in the shortest possible time and in an orderly way.
  • Each school must contact Tri-Board to arrange a date for bus evacuation training sessions. The evacuation practice would be arranged and held in a traffic-free area on school property. Evacuations could take place as the buses arrive at the school in the morning and/or before they leave in the afternoon. The evacuation practice would be arranged and held in a traffic-free area on school property.
