Emergency Operations Bus Driver Training

The professionals we employ have encountered many emergency scenarios throughout their careers. We’ll ensure you have the school bus driver multi-hazard emergency training you require.

Our 6.5-hour Tactical Bus Driver Training focuses on three key points:

  • Observational Awareness, Recognizing a Dangerous Situation
  • The Ability to Drive, Direct, and Communicate Under Stress is Vital
  • The Driver Must Commit 100% to the Appropriate Action in an Emergency

This 6.5-hour emergency response training is as real as it gets and features the following specific topics:

  • Emergency at a Bus Stop Scenario
  • Improvised Weapons Station
  • Tactical Driving Course
  • Emergency Communication
  • City Street Emergency Scenario
  • Active Threat inside the Transportation Building
  • Freeway/Highway Emergency Scenario
  • Mock Law Enforcement Response Scenario

We combine run, hide, and fight with OODA Loop and other evidence-based methods and integrate these methods with bus safety information, ensuring your drivers have the necessary school bus intruder response training. Our instructors tailor the curriculum to give your school realistic emergency experiences. We will also coordinate with your local law enforcement agency to create a unified response drill.

The KSL Tactical Driving Training Team includes 4 current and retired officers from The California Highway Patrol (CHP) with over 100 combined years of experience.

All training events include a Risk Management Liability Certificate of Training.
