Simulated Batavia bus crash provides training to area agencies
BATAVIA – Batavia police officers and firefighters rushed toward the school bus full of Rotolo Middle School students Wednesday, ready to assist any students injured in the staged collision between a car and the bus.
Police helped each student off the bus. Firefighters then carefully lifted three students who had neck injuries onto ambulance backboards and tended to the unconscious driver.
The scene gave Batavia School District 101 and emergency agencies training in how to respond to emergencies. Those involved in the simulation included the school district, Batavia fire and police departments, the Illinois Central Bus Company, Tri-Com Central Dispatch and the Southern Fox Valley and Central DuPage Emergency Medical Services System.
