Prom Promise Accident Drill

1250hrs The SHFD participated in the Schuylkill Haven High School prom promise program.  Part of the program consisted a mock DUI accident scene which involved members of the police department, fire department, ems, county coroners office, and students in the high school drama club. The  SHFD arrived to find a mock 2 car accident with one “victim” entrapped, crews stabilized the vehicles, performed extrication, and provided landing zone support for the incoming Life Flight helicopter that also participated in the event.  The annual event held by the high school is an extremely important reminder to students and adults alike the tragic consequences of driving under the influence.  Information and ideas for starting a program like this can be found at: http://www.sadd.org/campaign/prom.htm
