Kent County School Bus Drivers Help Keep Students Safe and Provide Emergency Evacuation for Residents with MOTOTRBO™
March 29 2011

Kent County Public School District in Maryland serves over 2,200 students in grades pre-K through 12. Located on a scenic peninsula, surrounded by Chesapeake Bay, Kent County is largely rural and one of Maryland’s least populous counties. The school district’s 36 buses provide transportation to its students who live throughout the county’s 414 square miles.

For the past twenty years, Kent County School District’s school bus drivers have depended upon two-way radios to keep in touch with each other and with the district’s transportation office. In 2000, the district received a request from the county’s public safety agencies to use its buses to provide residents with emergency mass transport service in the event of hurricane evacuations and other crises.

With the security of its students and the safety of county residents at stake, the school district wanted to ensure reliable two-way radio communication for its bus drivers. However, in the past few years, the age of the existing radio system had begun to show. Although the district continued to invest in regular maintenance, despite their best efforts the radio system had become unreliable.

Miller called in a local Motorola channel partner, who introduced the district to the MOTOTRBO digital radio system with increased capacity, extended range and GPS capability. Utilizing GPS-based location tracking applications, the district’s Transportation Supervisor would be able to easily identify where every school bus was at any time. And with MOTOTRBO’s increased capacity and clear communication throughout the coverage area, bus drivers would be in constant contact, increasing the safety and security of the district’s students.
