Mock Crash


A program presented to the High School students. The program starts with a speaker that was involved in a crash that resulted in severe injuries, in the past years the speaker was paralyzed in a motorcycle crash that involved drugs and alcohol. The students are brought out into the parking lot to view a car crash that has occurred that involves teens drinking and driving. There are usually 2 fatalities and several students severely injured. The students watch the agencies; fire, police, ambulance, air ambulance and hearse attend to the patients and manage the scene. The students are then brought back into the school for a funeral service for the teens that died.
