On the morning of November 2nd, Brittani Sigears was at the wheel of CMCSS Bus 01-104, picking up Montgomery Central High School and Montgomery Central Middle School students on Southside Road. The bus was a substitute for her regular bus, 806, which had been damaged the previous day by impact with a deer.

Ms. Sigears began to smell smoke coming from the bus so she immediately pulled over and calmly began evacuating the 20 students from the vehicle. As she and students looked on, they saw the bus on which they were just riding become fully engulfed in flames.

Thanks to her following safety training protocols and her calm, collected demeanor, all students were safe.
