Don’t be alarmed by that overturned school bus. It was only a drill.
Today firefighters participated in back-to-school training at the Edmonds School District bus base near Alderwood Mall.
The district was doing a training event for bus drivers, and firefighters demonstrated extrication and rescue techniques. The buses they used had been previously damaged in crashes and could no longer be used to transport students.
Firefighters from Snohomish County Fire Districts 1 and 7, and the Lynnwood and Mukilteo fire departments participated.
