Escort Details: The escort is responsible for making sure everyone on the trip is taken care of as well as assisting the driver in anyway needed.
Checking off the resident list for everyone going on the trip
Place a check mark next to those present
Cross out anyone that does not attend or cancels at the last minute
This will help with head counts as well as assists the IL Events Coor. with billing (if applicable) after the trip.
If a resident is not present at the time of departure from Sunnyside they will call the resident and see if the resident is still planning on going on the trip.
If no answer, we normally do not wait more than 1 to 2 minutes past the departure time
If they are running late, tell them the bus will not wait more than 5 minutes past the scheduled departure time.
Assist residents on trip:
Help with seat belts and be sure everyone is buckled before leaving campus
Place the step on the ground to assist residents getting on and off the bus
Offer a forearm to residents that may need extra balance assistance as they get on or off the bus
Help with driving directions (printed and placed in the trip book)
If you need to call the location- take care of any phone calls that need made (this has only happened once to my driver/escort and it was because the group ran into traffic and was running late. Very rarely does anyone need to call the destination location).
Give the group a meeting time (if applicable) and place to be back for the bus
