Student actors help present a realistic DUI fatality situation to encourage their fellow classmates to not drink and drive.
CLEARWATER – Clearwater Police and Clearwater Fire and Rescue teamed up to deliver a powerful message to city high school students about the deadly consequences of drinking and driving.

The presentations, entitled “Prom Promise,” took place on April 30 at Clearwater High and May 1 at Countryside High on each school’s football field. Drama students, police and firefighters helped stage a mock DUI-related fatality crash. Police officers and firefighters responded to the scene as if it was a real crash, including police conducting a traffic homicide investigation and fire medics treated the injured. The Bayflite helicopter even landed on the field to whisk away an “injured” student.

Also involved were Sunstar paramedics, the Suncoast Safety Council, Clearwater Towing, Dobies Funeral Home, and Students Against Destructive Decisions. A wrecked car was displayed, and a hearse came to pick up the “dead” student.

Ginger Brengle also spoke to students about how she lost four family members in a DUI-related crash in St. Petersburg on Aug. 1, 2010.
