Southern Columbia Area's SADD Chapter (Students Against Destructive Decisions), in conjunction with local emergency personnel, staged a mock DUI crash on school grounds, providing the High School's senior and junior students with a powerful, realistic lesson on the dangers of underage drinking and drunk driving. It was well-received by students and staff.
The mock drill was timed to occur during prom week. This year's Junior-Senior Prom will be held on Saturday, May 30th. "Standing at the door as students leave the prom and warning them about drinking and driving is one thing," stated High School Principal Jim Becker, "but to see the consequences, as this drill allowed them to do, is another."
The District appreciates the time and effort the local responders and state agencies devoted to the planning and implementation of this valuable lesson. Those participating were: Kimberly Smith, PennDot Safety Press Officer; Catawissa Borough Police Department; Catawissa Hose Company No. 1; Columbia County Adult Probation and Parole, Elysburg Ambulance; Elysburg Fire Department; Life Flight; Locust Township Police Department; Ralpho Township Police Department; and Valley Chemical of Numidia.
