RHINELANDER - Kids all over Wisconsin will head back to school soon.
However, workers at a Rhinelander bus service say knowing bus safety skills could safe your child's life.
"The song Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round inspired me so much. That's why I became a bus driver," said Jake Kriesel a Rhinelander bus driver who never puts a break on fun.
But Kriesel says bus safety is no laughing matter.
"Bus drivers only have one thing in mind and that is your safety," said Kriesel.
Kriesel drives for Bowen's Bus Service, and Thursday he will be a part of a School Bus Safety Open House.
"Making sure there're safe. That's really our number one job," said Kriesel.
The open house will have three bus emergency scenarios for kids to learn how to evacuate safely.
"Drills are important," said Bowen's Bus Service manager Kim Weyers who knows a thing or two about keeping kids safe on the way to school.
"I've been a bus driver since 1998," said Weyers with a laugh.
Weyers also says the open house will help kids prepare for the worst.
"It's just the bus driver with their back to 30 to 40 kids," said Weyers.
At the open house kids will learn how to escape fire, flood, and traffic.
The open house is Thursday 4:00 to 7:00 P.M. at Bowen's in Rhinelander.
