East Valley High School staged a mock crash on Tuesday. Students played the roles of the crash victims in a performance staged by the school's Washington Drug Free Youth club to show the dangers of drinking and driving. Representatives from the Spokane Valley Fire Department, the Spokane Valley Police Department and MedStar participated in the event. The Fire Department has provided some photos of the mock crash.
We've gotten a call or two this morning from people concerned about the closed streets and emergency vehicle activity at East Valley High School. Not to worry, the school is just hosting a mock crash demonstration to help illustrate the dangers of drinking and driving. I hope to have pictures from the Spokane Valley Fire Department to post later.
People may have noticed a lot of emergency vehicles and a MedStar helicopter at Central Valley High School yesterday morning. Nothing went wrong; the school was just hosting a mock crash demonstration. They are held every couple of years to warn students of the possible consequences of drinking and driving. Students play the role of victims and some schools have even been known to put on fake funerals to go with it. I've been to one before and they can be incredibly realistic. You can check tomorrow's Valley Voice for a few more details on how it went in the weekly fire department roundup. All photos are courtesy of the Spokane Valley Fire Department.
