Ansonia Drunk Driving Awareness Drill

ARMS, AFD, APD, and CSP Demonstrate A Head-On Drunk Driving Crash For the Students of Emmett O'Brien Technical School

With the prom right around the corner the students of Emmett O'Brien Technical School receives a sobering dose of reality this morning. A mock fatal accident was staged in the school parking lot with four of their classmates as victims complete with a rescue response by the Ansonia PD, Connecticut State Police, ARMS, and the Ansonia Volunteer Fire Department. The scene depicted a head on accident with a fatal partial ejection along with several other critically injured patients requiring extrication. The well organized drill drove home the reality of the dangers and consequences of under age drinking and driving. From the looks on the faces of the students and the attention as the crews worked on the mock patients, the driver of the car was arrested, and the deceased victim was removed from the scene it appeared as though the point of the drill was well received. Having been involved in many of these drills as rescuer and photographer I can say that the services did an excellent job of depicting the reality of an accident scene as well as performing a smooth rescue operation. The school administration and all the career and volunteer responders should be congratulated on a job well done by providing this learning experience for the students.
