Accident simulation at WNHS on Monday

When you drive by Woodstock North High School on Monday afternoon, May 2, and see scores of emergency equipment and maybe even the Flight-for-Life helicopter, don't worry. It's a training exercise (an expensive one, for sure), designed to scare high school students into safer driving practices and care during prom season.

The Woodstock Fire Rescue District will be simulating a two-car crash at WNHS. WFRD personnel will stage the extrication of victims from vehicles, and a Flight-for-Life helicopter may participate, weather permitting. Since Flight-for-Life bills $6,000 to start up the helicopter, who is paying for that?

This training exercise and demonstration is scheduled for 1:45PM. If you are driving on Raffel Road or on school grounds, please mind your driving. Hopefully, WFRD will place adequate warning signs on Raffel Road that the event is a training exercise, not the "real thing."

Perhaps D-200 personnel will see the wisdom of informing parents and students that this is a drill. Advance notice of this type will alleviate concern and hundreds of phone calls to the school. As of now, nothing is posted on the WNHS webpage.
