VBAS TAKES SAFETY BEYOND NORMAL Part One

In today’s safety and security minded society, there’s no greater though on the minds of educators and future planners than the safety of the people for whom they are responsible.  As you see in the image below, you’ll take note to the fact that special needs individuals are no exception to the rule when it comes to knowing what to do, how to do it, and when to do it in the event of an emergency while in transit on a bus.  This is all the more reason why we make it possible for some of our individuals to participate in walk-through practice drills when it comes to being prepared for an emergency either on campus or on a bus.

In this image, special thanks to Mrs. Miranda Kirkland for her time and bus for this particular photo shoot as she demonstrates to participants how to deploy a roof hatch to be used in the unlikely event escape through such exit is necessary.  In the wake of the recent Midland City incident which incidentally occurred not too far from this facility, we’ve taken proactive steps of our own to prepare individuals for emergency evacuation and other situations such as a lockdown, severe weather and fire.  So, as you can see, we do what it takes to make it work for everybody.
