This morning crews from Mount Holly Fire Dept, America Rescue Squad, and Westampton Township Emergency Services participated in the annual "Mock Crash" demonstration at the RV High School. Crews extricated two patients from a simulated incident where a drunk driver (after prom) had caused death and injuries to several people. After the simulation was over there were presentations that included the Burlington County Prosecutors Office and several real-life incidents where close friends and relatives were killed as a result of drunk driving and reckless driving. In this prom and graduation season, everyone is reminded of the basic safety messages that save lives. Don't drink and drive! Don't use your phone and drive! Don't drive recklessly!
