On June 6th, 2016 Warburg School, and Thorsby High School’s hosted the “Drive It Home Program”.  The event was also hosted at Breton High School on June 9, 2016.

The program brought together numerous partners including:

  • Thorsby/Breton RCMP
  • Thorsby, Warburg, Breton Fire Departments
  • Y.E.I.L.D (Youth Initiatives and Education in Lifestyles and Driving) Program
  • The Office of Traffic Saftey
  • Alberta Health Services
  • Associated Ambulance

The program was developed to speak to students in regards to high risk driving.  Numerous dispalys were set up including a driving simulator, and a vehicle extraction.  “YIELD” setup an interactive driving simulator which will assist in the understanding of the importance of paying attention while driving and the possible outcomes of driving distracted while texting, among other distractions.

The fire department provided an overview of the work First Responders and Fire Fighters are involved in during a crash scene including scene safety, vehicle extraction with the use of the Jaws-of-Life, among other life saving tools.

EMS provided a further understanding of the importance of wearing a seatbelt by describing in vivid detail what Paramedics and EMT’s may have to do in order to keep a casualty alive after a serious crash where the individuals did not wear a seatbelt.

The Thorsby/Breton RCMP wants to thank all the stakeholder who assisted in the valuable event.
