Shattered Dreams DUI Education

Medics and firefighters at a mock accident scene with high school students watching.Shattered Dreams is a program that is performed by area High School students, WCEMS, and other first responders. A mock collision and extrication are demonstrated for students to heighten their awareness of the consequences of driving while intoxicated. These are usually performed just before prom, Spring break, or Summer, serving as a reminder to be safe at times when teens are more likely to celebrate with alcohol. To schedule an event, please email EMS Public Education.

Honor Guard
