This Program is sponsored by local businesses in the community, and is a re-enactment of a fatal DUI traffic collision on the grounds of the high school.  The entire sophomore, junior, and senior class students will view the mock accident on April 24, 2014 at 10 a.m.

This emotionally charged program is designed to dramatically instill teenagers with the potentially dangerous consequences of drinking alcohol and using drugs.  This powerful program challenges students to think about drinking and drugs, safe operation of their automobiles, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions.

Numerous police, fire, and ambulance personnel will be responding to Vista Murrieta High School with lights and sirens at 10 AM.  There will also be a Mercy Air Flight helicopter landing on school grounds at 10:20 AM to airlift one of the “critically injured” students to a trauma center.

This entire event is a mock scene.  There is no actual emergency and no students, faculty, or staff at the high school is injured or are in any danger during the staged program.

The Program will conclude with a mock “funeral” and the sophomore, junior and senior Student Body Assembly on April 25, 2014 at 10:00 AM.

For further information you may contact The Every Fifteen Minutes Program Coordinator, School Resource Officer John Martin of the Murrieta Police Department – 951-304-2677 Ext. 6804 or jmartin@murrieta.org
