HOUSTON–()–Safety Vision, a worldwide leader of mobile video and fleet automation solutions since 1993 is pleased to announce the addition of exterior cameras for the Houston Independent School District’s (HISD) fleet of 989 school buses. HISD, the largest school district in Texas and the seventh-largest in the United States has been selected for many awards for their Transportation Department’s safety-centered operations including selection as one of two districts in the nation as a finalist for the prestigious Larson Quality Award. For over a decade, HISD has chosen Safety Vision as the sole school bus mobile surveillance provider to enhance the district’s safety transportation efforts.
“We’re thrilled to help HISD accomplish their school bus mobile video goals. Both Safety Vision and HISD strive to achieve the highest level of pupil transportation security possible and we’ve proven to be a great team over our established ten year relationship.”
Safety Vision’s RoadRecorder 6000® PRO mobile digital video recorder (MDVR) and four SV-830 dome interior cameras are currently outfitted on every vehicle in HISD’s fleet to monitor the interior, entrance door, and front driver views of the school buses. In an ongoing effort to increase student safety on school buses, HISD outfitted over 400 school buses each with three Safety Vision exterior cameras over the 2012 summer, and plans to retrofit the remaining school buses with exterior cameras by the beginning of the 2013 school year.
“The HISD Transportation Department has worked diligently this summer to increase student safety on our school buses. The addition of Safety Vision exterior cameras on 400 buses and eventually our entire fleet will greatly enrich our transportation security initiatives. Student and employee safety is our highest priority and the addition of Safety Vision exterior cameras will help us achieve our goals to have the most protected, reliable school buses possible,” said HISD’s Senior Manager of Fleet Operations Mark Swackhamer.
“The addition of exterior cameras on HISD’s school buses will provide an increased level of surveillance coverage to aid in the identification of any problematic events that may occur and get them rectified, easily and quickly,” said Bruce Smith, Safety Vision President and CEO. “We’re thrilled to help HISD accomplish their school bus mobile video goals. Both Safety Vision and HISD strive to achieve the highest level of pupil transportation security possible and we’ve proven to be a great team over our established ten year relationship.”
