On Monday May 18 the Brewster Fire Department participated in Nauset Regional High Schools annual DUI Awareness Day. The program included a real time re-enactment of a head on motor vehicle crash that results in multiple severe traumatic injuries, a fatality, and the DUI arrest of one of the vehicles drivers. Members of the senior class participated as victims and drivers of the vehicles.
The goals of the annual re-enactment are to provide the senior class with a better understanding of the consequences that may occur when driving while distracted by texting or while under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs and to aid in preventing these tragic events from occurring within our region.
Public Safety agencies participating in the exercise included the Eastham Fire and Police Departments, Orleans Fire Department, Wellfleet Fire and Police Departments, and the Brewster Fire Department. All involved departments wish the graduating senior class a safe summer season and successful future careers!
