Sacramento City Unified School District joined forces with local law enforcement and other agencies last Thursday to stage a mock school bus accident at McClellan Park. This multi-agency training exercise aimed at training school bus drivers and emergency responders on actions in the event of a crisis.

“Preparation is the key to school bus driver training,” said Chuck Ernst, Director of Distribution Services. “The mock school bus accident is something that all drivers should observe and participate in so they are ready in case of a major accident.”

Agencies participating with SCUSD in the training exercise included Sacramento Police Department, California Highway Patrol, Sac Metro Fire, Cal Star and the American Red Cross.
