HGH EMS Rescue, Lowry High School Partner for Anti-Alcohol Program

Every 15 minutes, someone dies as the result of an alcohol-related collision.

That will be the focus behind a program at Lowry High School Monday and Tuesday, May 22-23.

“Every 15 Minutes” is a two-day program which demonstrates to high school students the impact drinking and driving has on themselves, their families, friends and the community.

The highlight of the program is a simulated traffic collision near the high school on Monday, May 22, involving an impaired teenage driver and a fatally injured victim.

The mock accident and its entire aftermath will be filmed and shown to students during an assembly on Tuesday, May 23. Other activities and events will also show the emotional toll that drinking and driving takes.

This is the third time that “Every 15 Minutes” has been presented by Humboldt General Hospital Emergency Medical Services Rescue in partnership with the Humboldt County School District.

HGH EMS Rescue Program Coordinator Debbie Whittaker said the program requires a great deal of work on the part of his team, but she believes it’s time well spent.

“Many of us have seen the impact this program has had in other communities,” she said, “and we want the same level of awareness here in Humboldt County.”

She added, “With the kinds of things we see during our calls, we are intent on doing what we can to help our students understand that drinking and driving do not go together.”
