FIRST OBSERVER TRAINING
School Bus First Observer (SBFO) is a U.S. Department of Homeland Security program administered by the Transportation Security Administration, Highway and Motor Carrier Division (HMC). This program is national in scope and supported by state transportation departments to provide basic security awareness by teaching school bus drivers how to identify, evaluate and report any suspicious incidents.
School Transportation Security Awareness (STSA)
STSA focuses on terrorist and criminal threats to school buses, bus passengers and destination facilities. It is designed to provide school bus drivers, administrators, and staff members with information that will enable them to effectively identify and report perceived security threats, as well as the skills to appropriately react and respond to a security incident should it occur.
