• FMCSA DOT Testing

    Kalamazoo RESA offers DOT drug and alcohol testing program to a consortium of schools in Branch, Calhoun, Kalamazoo, and St. Joseph Counties.

    Step 1: A school would first submit a registration to enroll a driver. You will find the enrollment form "HERE". Save the form to your computer and rename it. Supply the school information and save. Simply print the form for the new driver to complete their 9 digit social security number and signature. Scan and email the completed registration to kelly.edra@kresa.org before the driver leaves for the collection site.

    A sample CCF required information is available HERE

    Step 2: Provide a Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control Form to the driver to take to the collection site with the following catagories marked:

    C: Driver must record their 9 digit donor number in your presence. This step is essential to avoid errors at the collectin site.

    D: FMCSA

    E: Reason. (Mark one)  Pre employment- random- post accident- follow up

    F: THC, COC, PCP, OPI, AMP

    Step 3: The collection facility will ask the driver for the Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control Form and view the driver license number to verify identification. They collect the speciment and forward it to the lab. The lab will forward the results using the donor number to the Medical Review Officer. The Medical Review Officer will notify Disa of the results, and Disa will notify KRESA of the results. Your Transportation Supervisor will be notified by email immediatly of the results for pre employment, post accident, and follow up. Random results are reported at the conclusion of the quarter by confidencial mailing. Failing to use the 9 digit donor number will create multiple delays and errors which will greatly delay posting the results.

    Overview: KRESA will mail you the Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control Form and a sealed envelope with the random and alternate driver names near the beginning of the quarter. Disa selected the quarterly random list and a list of alternate drivers if the random driver is not available for the entiire quarter. The alternate drivers must be taken in the order they appear on the alternate list. Current FMCSA DOT standards require 50% of the pool to be drug tested and 10% to be alcohol tested. Disa makes the selection for all required tests. Since alcohol is not an ilegal substance unless driving a Commercial vehicle, a driver chosed to be both drug and alcohol testing must drive a commercial vehicle the day of the testing. To receive the results prior to the conclusion of the quarter, we ask that you send the driver a minumum of 7 days before the quarter concludes. The quarters are January 1- March 31, April 1- June 30, July 1- September 30, and October 1- December 31.
