Middle Georgia Technical College Students Host DUI Simulation
Warner Robins - - The Student Leadership Council (SLC) at Middle Georgia Technical College hosted a live Drunk Driving/DUI simulation on Tuesday, June 13, 2012. The simulation presented the dangers and residual effects of driving under the influence.
The simulation was sponsored by the MGTC Student Leadership Council (SLC) and coordinated by SLC member, Dawn Hall, and SLC Adviser Debbie Price. Donning theatrical make-up and tattered clothing, Hall and SLC members Kris Kunkle, Harry Harrell, Miranda Mosley, and Mike Westbrook re-enacted a DUI accident scene with the help of medical response teams.
'The purpose of the simulation was to make students aware that the effects of drinking and driving don't stop at the crime scene. It goes farther" said Hall. She also added, "If I could reach at least one student on campus, that one student could be the life I save."
The live simulation was guided by emergency personnel including Mike Ashley and Sean Halpin, Houston Medical Center EMS; Kendell Marzoll & JT Jones, Houston County Fire Department; Deputy Will Mitchelson, Houston County Sheriff's Office; and Sergeant Randy Evans, Warner Robins Police Department. Mike Wortham, owner of Bow Tie Towing in Warner Robins, donated two vehicles that were previously involved in actual DUI accidents for presentation in the simulation. After completion of the simulation, emergency personnel and HODAC representatives Lisa Troxell, Stephanie Reeves, and Tony Morris presented faculty, staff, and students with a presentation illustrating the overwhelming statistics and realities of driving under the influence.
