Accident mock-up meant to educate, not alarm

Accident scene to be staged by Tarry's Fire Department near Mt. Sentinel School.

On Friday May 31st, between approximately 9 a.m. and noon, the Tarry’s fire department will be setting up a “mock” accident scene at Playmore road and Eden road near the Mt. Sentinel school. This scene will look like an authentic car crash and will include casualties, crashed cars, as well as Fire rescue, EHS, and Police.

The fire department has done this in the past, and it is an educational/awareness building exercise focusing on the aftermath of drinking and/or drugging and driving.   Approximately 150 grade 11 and 12 students will be present, and there will be a de briefing afterwards where students can ask questions and interact with emergency workers.

This is just a notice to advise that the accident scene will be a staged one, and not a real life one, should people drive by and see this set up.

Any questions can be directed to the Tarry’s fire department trainer, Dave Laramee  at (250)354-8101
