Mock accident teaches students the downside of driving under the influence

A student is “detained” by a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper as part of a mock accident held Friday by the Concordia High School Student Council and the Concordia Fire Department. The event is part of the Missouri Safe and Sober campaign. CHS has participated in the campaign for several years. The mock accident is hosted by CHS every other year.

The Concordia Fire Department recently held a mock accident in conjunction with the Concordia High School Student Council as part of the Safe and Sober campaign.
CHS has participated in the campaign for several years.
Students watched a video and then took a pledge to be “safe and sober” by not riding with someone driving under the influence.
Every other year CHS hosts the mock accident, which seems to be a very impactful event.
The accident not only shows students the dangers of irresponsible driving, but it also gives the CFPD practice for such events, including working with Life Flight. Students also heard a message from the Missouri State Highway Patrol after the mock accident in the CHS gym.
