Abstract The Oregon Public Health Division Environmental Health Assessment Program (EHAP) was asked by the Salem-Keizer School District to conduct this Health Consultation (HC). The purpose of this HC is to evaluate the public health risk for children who may have come into contact with contaminants found on several school buses in the Salem-Keizer School District (SKSD). Following a fire that destroyed and/or damaged several school buses parked in the SKSD Hawthorne Ave. bus barn, bus drivers began reporting health symptoms from driving affected school buses.
