M2, I thought this might be of some interest to you... I participated in a mock drunk driving accident scene today at a local high school in which two carloads of kids and one on a motorcyle were involved. We had two DOA, both drivers were banged up but uninjured enough to get out of the car and "walk the walk", and four that were transported by ambulance to local hospitals for treatment. But the best part was when PHI's Sky Med arrived and landed right in the road outside the school parking lot where we were doing the accident scene. The chopper made a pass overhead, banked to the right in a 360, and then came straight in to land on the road in front of us. We loaded the last "most critical" kid into the chopper and they fired up, lifted off, and headed to the nearest hospital. I played the part of the Grim Reaper (hope to have pictures tomorrow) and accompanied the student from the parking lot to the waiting chopper, stood by while she was loaded up, and then remained there until they closed the doors and got ready to light the fire again. The pilot took it straight up about 30 feet, turned a little to the left, and then took it between some trees and was on his way. An (old) article about the "Shattered Lives" program can be found here: http://www.thebulletin.com/archives/2001/may/teendrinking.htm And a news story about Sky Med can be found here: http://www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=11015678&BRD=1914&PAG=461&dept_id=183407&rfi=6 We're in Montgomery County and we just started using this service. The program was pretty neat overall, and pretty touching. As we pulled one young lady out of class and read her obituary to the rest of the class she broke down as she stood with us. We'll be doing it again next month at Montgomery HS in case anyone in the area is interested in seeing it. May 12th. By the way, in this progam, everyone who survived the accident scene and was transported to the hospital will die. We then have to notify the parents at home or work of the death of their child. We even had the coroner's meat wagon show up to pick up the two DOA bodies at the scene after their parents identified the bodies (every attempt is made to make this as realistic as possible). While the kids watching (the entire senior class) were full of giggles at the beginning of the program, they were quiet as a mouse by the end.
