Emergency pamphlets will be distributed on city buses

Pamphlets explaining what to do in event of an emergency will be distributed on 35 city bus lines in the wake of several high-profile bus fires, the Shanghai bus authority said.

The pamphlets will note where tools like emergency hammers can be found on a bus and how to use them.

Bus driver Li Weiwei said the hammers work best when smashing the edges of a window. He said smashing the middle of a window is more likely to lead to cuts from broken glass. Li added there are two emergency exits on the roof of each bus.

The authority decided to issue the pamphlets after a Hangzhou bus was set on fire last week, leaving 32 people injured. Similar incidents occurred in Changsha and Guangzhou within the past 10 days.
