Evacuation Procedures for Activity Trips and Field Trips Mobile App

In order to ensure the safety of school bus passengers in an actual emergency, every school bus driver assigned to transport students on activity trips or field trips should assign an evacuation team prior to each trip. The team may consist of teachers, coaches, students or any other passengers. Remember not all students ride the bus regularly and should receive ridership training. Passengers assigned to evacuation teams must be seated where they can effectively carry out their responsibilities in an emergency. Use the Evacuation Procedures for Activity Trips and Field Trips mobile app to assist you in preparing your team for an emergency. In order for you to use GoCanvas, you must download the GoCanvas Smart Client for your device.
