It is prom season and Newark Police Department are doing their part to teach Juniors and Seniors at Newark Central School of the dangers of distracted and drunk driving. And Tuesday at 9 a.m. in collaboration with Newark Arcadia EMS, The Marbletown, Newark and Fairville Fire Departments Newark Central School is holding the 3rd semi-annual Prom Crash Drill. During the drill, public safety agencies will respond to, extricate, triage, treat, and transport simulated victims of a three-car motor vehicle incident. The demonstration also provides a substantial hands-on learning experience for our public safety providers. The "victims" are all members of the Newark-Arcadia EMS Junior Membership Program. 376 students died in an alcohol-related accident on their prom night in 2005.
