The Kansas Department of Education and the School Bus Safety Unit have been producing the Kansas Bus Emergency Support System (KBESS) book for over 25 years. This book is a state wide emergency directory for school transportation providers who need support when the school vehicle they are operating becomes disabled away from their "bus barn".
