School Bus Extrication

This presentation covers everything responders need to know at school bus emergencies. Attendees will be instructed on school bus characteristics, how to gain access and how to systematically remove injured patients. The types of buses, construction and their weaknesses will be addressed. Stabilization of buses in an upright, side and roof presentation will be explained. Initial access can be problematic depending on the damage to the bus. Entry through the front and rear doors may be impossible. Getting inside can be made by using window, door, sidewall, floor and roof breaching techniques. Once inside, organized flow of patient removal needs to be established.
