WEST JORDAN, Utah (News4Utah) – Instead of retiring about a dozen old school buses to a junkyard, the Jordan School District offered them up to first responders for some heavy rescue training.

The West Jordan Fire Department and a valley-wide heavy rescue team used the buses to simulate dangerous situations where lives are on the line. 

For example, News4Utah witnessed a scenario where rescue crews had to use the “Jaws of Life ” and break the windows of the bus in an effort to rescue victims trapped inside.

Organizers with the Jordan School District said this training is valuable information that can lead to lives saved in emergency situations on the bus.
