School Bus Safety Presentation
Yough School District
"Operation Lifesaver was recently invited to present at a Safety Day for the school bus drivers at the Yough School District division of Student Transportation of America (STA). Volunteer presenter Andy Blenko gave an overview of important information through the Operation Lifesaver visuals, then showed the "Decide Smart, Arrive Safe" video. 48 drivers attended the program following their morning runs. Over coffee and doughnuts, they also received a refresher on operational procedures and a lesson in maintenance issues from the company's chief bus mechanic. Pens, crossbuck pins, and litter bags for the buses were given to each driver to serve as reminders of the things they learned."
