School Bus Safety and Electricity

When you play in your home or outside, you must obey electrical safety rules. Electrical safety is important on your school bus too! If your school bus is an accident and a power line comes down on or near the bus, follow these important rules:

Rule 1: Obey and listen to your bus driver!

Rule 2: Be very quiet and sit still! Wait for your bus driver to tell you what to do next.

Rule 3: Stay in your seat! The safest place is on the bus.

Rule 4: Know how to get off the bus! If your bus driver tells you it's time to leave the bus, follow these rules:

  • Line up quickly and quietly.
  • Watch the bus driver for instructions.
  • Keep your feet together. Hold your arms tightly at your sides.
  • Jump clear without touching the bus and the ground at the same time.
  • Land with feet together and shuffle a safe distance away from the bus.

Rule 5: Move away without touching the bus, and stay a safe distance from the accident.

Rule6: Stay together in a group. Listen to your bus driver until help arrives.


Don't forget these safety tips as well:

  • Don't fly kites near power lines.
  • Don't climb trees that are touching power lines.
  • Always stay away from downed power lines and report the danger to an adult immediately.
  • Water and electricity don't mix. Never use any electrical objects near water.
