HANDICAPPED STUDENT EVACUATION

Planning by school systems to manage the emergency evacuation of handicapped passengers on buses is considered, as well as accident scene evacuation management. Dealing with handicapped students during emergencies represents a challenge for bus drivers and aides, school transportation managers, parents, and the general public. Questions to be answered when planning for the emergency evacuation of these students concern the use of emergency data cards, student seating charts (with photographs), the decision to evacuate the bus, individual student evacuation behavior, handicapped student evacuation drills, and driver and other evacuation training. Accident scene evacuation management depends on driver training for proper crowd control, compliance by drivers and others at the scene with planned evacuation activities and precautions, and correction of mistakes made at the scene of previous accidents involving emergency student evacuation.
