In response to worldwide acts of violence involving school children, the three national associations (NAPT, NASDPTS and NSTA), as members of the American School Bus Council (ASBC), are working with the Transportation Security Administration's First Observer™ program. Total Security Services International, Inc. (TSSI) is the First Observer team member responsible for leading the development and implementation of a program of Security Training for School Transportation. The program, entitled SCHOOL BUS FIRST OBSERVER, will be finalized and available in June, 2009.
During the initial phase, TSSI will also provide, at no cost, a master trainer for end user training (drivers, monitors, technicians, office staff, etc.) for large groups of 250-300 or more employees on a first-come, first-served basis.
TTT and end user training sessions will be available beginning June 8, 2009. An on-line training module will be available later in the year.
TTT sessions are scheduled as follows:
The First Observer Call Center is active 24/7 and receiving reports about potential security threats at 1-888-217-5902. Additional information on School Bus First Observer is available online at www.FirstObserver.com.
