First Responders from the Southern Columbia community recently provided over 200 junior and senior students with a realistic look at the dangers of drinking and driving by staging a DUI crash simulation. Organized by Nurse Shawnee Robel, in conjunction with local emergency responders, the event was timed to coincide with the May 6th prom. A goal of the simulation is for students to understand the devastating impact impaired driving can have.
 
Many thanks are extended to the following organizations that volunteered resources for the mock crash: North Central Highway Safety Network, Catawissa Hose Co. No. 1, Valley Chemical of Numidia, Elysburg Fire Department, Elysburg Ambulance, Overlook Fire Co., Bloomsburg Volunteer Ambulance, Life Flight, and officers from Ralpho Township, Catawissa and Locust Township police departments.
 
 
 
 

 

 
 
 
This video recorded by Bob Rush Photography captures the local responders in action tending to the "victims" of   the simulated crash. Fortunately, the accident wasn’t real, but the message was: Don’t drink and drive, or ride with somebody who is drunk, and don’t get distracted by a cellphone call or text.
