On Wednesday March 8th 2018, at the Ernest Pruitt Center of Technology in Hollywood. The Hollywood Police Department, Hollywood Fire Department, Alabama State Troopers, Stevenson Police Department, Highlands Ambulance Service, AirEvac, The Jackson County Coroners office, along with faculty and student actors conducted a mock DUI crash scene. We did two blocks, this is the morning block, the evening block will be posted later.
The event is set up at a post prom party where stu...dents are drinking, a group decides to leave and has a fatal crash with other members from the party. Responders arrive and assess the damage, care for the wounded and the deceased. The drunk driver is arrested.
This type of reenactment gives students a first hand look at what happens on a fatal crash scene, from the jaws of life being used to extract entrapped occupants, sheets being placed over the deceased, people being taken away in an ambulance, air evac landing and traffic homicide investigators collecting evidence and finally the driver being charged.
After the presentation students were taken into a conference room for a debriefing. We really hope we made a difference, we hope that the students will think back to this scene and the thought of losing their friends and make the decision to never drive impaired.
Thank you to everyone who assisted with this with this event and a special thanks to Ronny Hill from Independent Wrecker Service for donating the vehicles that were used for this event and to Patrick Allen, patrick puts in a lot of time getting this event set up and ensuring we have everyone we need and the equipment we need to make it happen.

Not even the flu could keep Charlee from having his snowman.
Charlee prayed for it to snow, but has the flu so his Dad went out and collected enough for him to build a snowman and an ice skating rink.
We hope you feel better fast Charlee.

Road conditions continue to deteriorate, the sun setting will allow for many icy spots on the roadways. Please limit travel to necessities. Wishing you all a safe and warm night.
