Mock DUI Accident at Polson High School

Tim Thornton PA-C at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center is working with local emergency responders to conduct a mock DUI accident on the Polson High School football field for all high school students.

After the crash demonstration, emergency responders will arrive on scene, conduct sobriety tests, remove students from the wrecked vehicle, and retrieve the body of the student who did not survive.

All participating agencies will respond to the event as if it were a real incident.

Participating agencies scheduled to respond included:

  • Polson EMS
  • Providence St. Joseph Medical Center
  • Polson Fire Department
