Multiple first responder agencies and Lakeside High School students will participate in a mock fatal crash to demonstrate the dangers of impaired driving and lack of seatbelt usage to the students.
On Wednesday, March 23, 2016, at 9:30 a.m., on the Lakeside High School Campus (Located at 9090 US 371 Sibley, LA 71073), multiple agencies will work with students to demonstrate the possible fatal consequences of impaired driving and the dangers of not using seat belts.
Students involved will act out a fatal crash scene scenario in front of their peers, allowing the students to see first-hand how drinking and driving affects everyone involved. Doyline High School student’s grades 9th-12th will also be attending this event.
Numerous state and local agencies including Louisiana State Police Troop G, Pafford EMS, Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office, Sibley and Minden Fire Departments, University Health Shreveport, Webster Parish Coroner’s Office, Sibley Police Department, and Gordon’s Wrecker Service will participate in the scenario.
This is an effort by participating agencies to reduce the number of underage DWI's as well as serious injury and fatal crashes, particularly during Prom season. Programs such as mock crashes teach youth the importance of making sound decisions throughout the course of their lives.
