MCP to Assist in Simulated "Every 15 Minutes" Traffic Collision at Churchill High School

For Immediate Release: Thursday, October 4, 2012

Today, Montgomery County police officers are partnering with the faculty, parents, and students of Winston Churchill High School in holding the national program "Every 15 minutes" (someone in the United States dies from an alcohol related traffic collision) program at the school.  The program is intended to instill in teenagers the potentially dangerous consequences of drinking alcohol and texting while driving. As part of the program, Montgomery County Police and Montgomery County Fire & Rescue, with student participation, will simulate a traffic collision on school grounds at 10:45 a.m. today.  As police and Fire & Rescue personnel treat injured participants, other student spectators will experience the sounds and sights of being involved in an alcohol-related and texting related collision.


The media is invited to attend the simulated traffic collision.  The event will begin today at 10:45 a.m. on the grounds of Churchill High School (11300 Gainsborough Road in Potomac).  For additional questions, please call First District Community Services Officer Michael Prather at 240-876-1570.  If he is unavailable, please call the Public Information Office at 240-773-5030.
