The Mock Car Crash is a staple activity of many SADD chapters. The demonstration is divided into two distinct segments: 1) The crash and rescue and 2) Comments from the people who performed the emergency services. It will require help from your school administrators, local fire and police departments, and hospital. Through the combined efforts of these agencies and services, the mock crash demonstration will simulate the arrest, rescue, and medical transport of the injured students and the deaths of others.
1. Visit the Mock Car Crash page on the SADD.org website.
2. Work on obtaining community support from local law enforcement and medical professionals, as well as local media members.
3. Gather student volunteers to help implement the mock crash.
4. Set a date, time, and location that is conducive to the entire region, including multiple schools/districts.
5. Set up the wrecked car and victims.
6. Have local law enforcement and paramedics demonstrate what happens when they arrive on the scene after an impaired driving crash. Ask them to arrest the impaired driver and strap the victims to a backboard or pronounce them dead, and cover them with a sheet.
7. Discuss the event. Elicit comments from the people who performed the emergency services, friends, and family of the "deceased," and participants who witnessed the event.
