Juniors and seniors of Polk County schools witnessed a worst case scenario reenactment Friday morning through a portrayal of what could happen when students make poor decisions involving intoxicated driving. Southwest EMS coordinated the drama with Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Mena Fire Department and the Coroners office. The scene depicted a two vehicle motor vehicle accident in which the occupants were intoxicated, resulting in two “fatalities,” numerous “injuries,” and “arrest.” The drama is presented to students before prom and sends a message from first responders to students encouraging them to make wise choices.
