ADAMS TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Jo Byrns High School Students, the Adams Fire Department, the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office, Robertson County EMS, the Robertson County Emergency Management Agency and Vanderbilt Medical Center all came together Friday afternoon for one purpose, save lives.
Our first responders see tragedy caused by distracted driving every day, this time they would come together preemptively in hopes of getting the message through, “It can happen to you.”
This was Jo Byrns High School HOSA (Future Health Professionals) first ever Mock Crash. The Mock Crash was in conjunction with the “Be In The Zone, Turn Off Your Phone (BITZ)” Teen Motor Vehicle Safety Program.
Throughout the 2016-2017 school year JBHS HOSA Students have conducted numerous activities to bring awareness to the dangers of distracted driving in teens. The Mock Crash is the finale of the program and the HOSA club is hoping that it will leave a lasting impact on the students regarding the dangers and consequences of texting and driving
WARNING: Jo Byrns High School students did a great job providing special effects that, combined with the cross county agency response, made for a very realistic performance. If you do plan to allow younger children to watch the video we recommend that you remind them throughout the video that it’s just cosmetics/makeup and special effects and no one was harmed in this performance.
