School District members get questions answered at A-Z Bus Sales on the Child Safety Alert System installed on school buses.

If you are like most school districts in California, you are probably trying to make sense of the new Child Safety Alert System (CSAS) laws as a result of the Senate Bill 1072 (link). You are not alone. A-Z Bus Sales is leading California in their effort to reduce anxiety and answer questions about the new Child Safety Alert System laws that require all California school buses to be equipped with the latest system by the start of the 2018/2019 school year.

A-Z Bus sales is doing their part to help educate school districts about the regulations, how it affects their school bus fleets, and installation procedures. Hosting a Q & A session for local California School Districts, the A-Z Bus Sales service and parts team were on hand on Tuesday, February 7th at the A-Z Bus Sales Colton, California service center location to demonstrate the installed Child Check-Mate system on an All American Blue Bird Type D Transit School Bus. School district transportation directors and lead bus mechanics asked questions about the Child Check System as A-Z Bus Sales parts, and service staff offered answers and additional insights into the new Child Safety Alert Systems regulations.
