Today, a Mock Crash will take place at Whiteoak High School beginning at approximately 12 noon. Whiteoak High School along with the Southern Highland Joint Fire District, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and T & G Towing will conduct this event as a reminder to our students to drive safely, especially with our upcoming Prom.
This announcement serves as a notification for the community of today’s event to prevent confusion. The public should not mistake this event for a real crash – it is strictly a dramatization for students to educate them about the dangers of drinking and driving and distracted driving. Dispatchers will send emergency personnel to the scene of the mock crash which will be audible on law enforcement dispatch radios and rescue squad scanners.
We just wanted to make our community aware of this event.
