KANSAS CITY — Attendees at the NAPT Summit and NASDPTS Conference got the chance to witness two live-action school bus fires, combined with evacuation exercises that were designed to better illustrate what it is like to respond to fire on a bus that has students on board.
One middle school student from Mesquite Independent School District near Dallas, Texas, died, and four others were sent to the hospital, following a school bus roll-over and fire.
Dafo Brand AB in Sweden has decided to separate its vehicle fire detection and suppression operations from its core fire safety equipment business. Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection AB will begin operation starting July 1, 2018.
Student transporters discuss their needs and preferences for fire suppression systems to forestall safety threats. Suppliers of the systems also share the best things about their offerings, and inspectors give tips for post-fire procedures.
