The Kent Fire Department RFA, in cooperation with a variety of agencies, hosts a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) crash simulation for area high schools. Student actors and emergency response agencies (fire, police, medics, ambulance company, etc.) create an impaired caused car crash that is choreographed to resemble what actually takes place at a major incident. Following the simulated crash, a panel discussion of guests speaks to the students to discuss what was seen. It is a very powerful exercise that we hope will encourage students to choose not to drink and drive - especially as we move toward the season of proms and graduation.
Parents and community members are welcome and encouraged to attend the Gift of Life. The program will begin at approximately 12:30 PM in the senior parking lot of Kentwood High School. Please call 253-856-4415 for questions on the program.
