As a father, I cannot fathom the very tragic death of a 3-year-old child in Queensland who was left on a minibus. Our thoughts are with all those impacted by this tragedy.

A simple solution is available to all bus operators in Australia to prevent these tragedies again and is a Firestorm Group product range of Safety, Survivability, and Technology.

Child Check Mate is a system that forces the bus operator to press a button at the rear of a bus when turning a bus off. The system ensures a check for any children asleep as well as a security check is completed. If the bus driver forgets, it will sound a horn, alarm to notify the driver.

Several operators have commenced installing this product operating school bus runs, but this is also suitable for minibusses as well.

Any bus operators interested in this product, our company is available to talk with you on 1800 424 669. You may also send us an email at
