Students Learn About the Dangers and Consequences of Drunk Driving and Distracted Driving

Hartford and Fort Ann Central School students attended an assembly on Wednesday, May 8, onsite at the Hartford Volunteer Fire Company to learn about the dangers and consequences of drunk driving and distracted driving.  

 

The presentation included a mock crash scene drill that was narrated by Deputy Robert Sullivan of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, with Hartford students acting as the impaired driver and victim, and members of the Hartford Volunteer Fire Company, which includes Hartford students Lucas Casey, Brandon Harrington, and Thomas MacDuff.

 

In addition to the mock drill, Deputy Sullivan shared statistical data, powerful and impactful videos of real life stories about victims of drunk driving and distracted driving, as well as his own personal stories.
