DUI Awareness at TVHS

By Fire Chief Jason Brooks
May 3, 2019

This afternoon, TVFD members joined with local EMS and police at the Twin Valley High School to raise awareness of drinking and driving. The program focused on the tragic events that can occur when an intoxicated driver gets behind the wheel, and is held in conjunction with prom season. An auto accident scene was simulated, complete with volunteer high school students participating as victims. The student observers were gathered around the accident scene to watch what goes on to save the lives of those involved in serious auto accidents. The event was treated as a real incident and narrated throughout the program. Rescue 69 responded to the scene, and began vehicle stabilization and extrication, followed shortly by Engine 69-1 to assist. Elverson-Honey Brook EMS and Uwchlan EMS simulated patient care, while Caernarvon Police simulated arresting the DUI teenage driver and the Berks County Coroner simulated removing the fatal victim.

The officers and members of TVFD would like to thank all the students who attended and role played as "victims", and the Caernarvon Police Department for arranging the drill. We hope that everyone involved learned some valuable lessons and that none of the students have to ever deal with the real life consequences of drinking and driving.

Units: Rescue 69; Engine 69-1
