Using "Too Real" To Educate - Clarenville's Mock Disaster
It's often a challenge to show people the potential impact of mixing booze and driving. Over the past few years, some innovative approaches have been taken in the form of mock disasters. Such a disaster took place in Clarenville today.
First Responders from Clarenville held such a Mock Disaster Drill Thursday, November 29, 2012 in front of the Clarenville Middle and High school complex. Members of Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD), the RCMP, the Clarenville Volunteer Fire Departments, & Fewers Ambulance Service extricated volunteer “victims” out of two smashed cars. About 600 students, teachers and parents looked on as a very real rescue and recovery played out.
