Did you know that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among youth ages 15 to 20? Did you know that the rate of fatal crashes among alcohol-involved drivers between 16 and 20 years old is more than twice the rate for alcohol-involved drivers 21 and older? Can we afford to not try to prevent any of San Saba’s youth from becoming part of these statistics?
On March 10th and 11th, there will be a program called SHATTERED DREAMS that will be presented at San Saba High School. Those of you that live in and around the school [specifically near 9th street] will see what looks like a horrendous crash near the gym. Please be aware that this is a MOCK crash site and it will involve emergency response personnel from law enforcement, EMS and the fire department. It will involve "multiple victims" and will look REAL. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Marsha Hardy at the Office of Emergency Management at 372-8570.
9th street from Commerce to Storey will be barricaded off from 6:00 a.m. until the "scene" is cleaned up after lunch, for the safety of all that will be involved or any bystanders. You are welcome to come and observe the proceedings - but you will need to park away from and walk to the school. Anyone involved in the program will be in designated t-shirts and you can ask them where you need to stand.
There are 31 students who have volunteered to be a part, they have gotten permission from their families and many of the parents will be participating - all of this is to make it as real as possible - to get across the "consequences of bad choices"!
If you would like to volunteer your time or any "spare" funds that you have to go to a good cause, contact Marsha Hardy at 372-8570, and we’ll put you to work!
