ALERT: An Emergency-Response Exercise Involving a Staged Crash is Underway at LAHS Today

on April 17, 2012 - 11:09pm

Please be aware that an emergency-response exercise involving a vehicular accident will take place from approximately 11 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. today in the faculty parking lot at Los Alamos High School, as part of the "Every 15 Minutes" program.

"Every 15 minutes" is a national initiative that uses staged crashes, emergency-response scenarios, and discussion to educate and remind students —and adults—about the many dangers associated with driving while impaired or texting.

Los Alamos police and fire departments are participating in the exercise, along with Careflight, a critical care transport service, that will land a helicopter on the high school's practice field.
