School Bus Extrication Quick Tips


 A little bit of forcible entry, but it gets the job done.  Thoughts on using a pike pole to open the door on a school bus?  Check out more of Brian Craig’s pictures.

With the roof of a school bus made up of two layers of metal were separated by insulation, a metal cutting circular saw is an excellant tool to use.  The picture above was taken from a School Bus extrication article written by Tom Kiurski, Training Coordinator for the Livonia Fire and Rescue outside of Detroit.  Kiurski also authored a book named Creating a Fire-Safe Community: A Guide for Fire Safety and has written articles for Fire Engineering.  A great quote from Kiurski’s article, “train with what you would normally have on-scene”.
