How to Protect School Buses from Engine Fires

According to a recent study, most school bus fires start in the engine area, running gear, or wheel area of the vehicle. For the incidents in which the area of origin was known, 68% of school bus fires originated in one of those areas, and in “a significant number” (FMCSA-RRR-16-016) of those fires, an electrical wire was cited as the first item to have been ignited.

Because of findings like this, there has been a bigger focus on, and adoption of, fire suppression technology on board school buses in the U.S in the last few years. As thermal events continue to pose a threat, learn what you can do to protect your school bus and, more importantly, your students.

Key Takeaways:
  • The importance of an automatic Fire Suppression system
  • The three key elements in a fire suppression system that eliminates thermal events in seconds
  • How other school bus districts, fleets, and states are addressing engine fire suppression
  • How you can protect the schools’ most valuable assets – the students
