Safety Fair hosted by RHS
In a joint effort by FCCLA, Deputy Sonny Goodowens, and various
public and private agencies, a sober message of caution and good
decision-making concerning drinking and driving and drug use was
brought to the RHS student body. The task force included
representatives from the Clarksville Police Department, Montgomery
County Sheriff's Department, the Emergency Rescue agencies, and legal
personnel. A computer presentation discussed traffic fatalities and
causes (usually drinking and driving with those under 21). A DVD
called "Meth is Death" brought home the dangers and results of
methamphetamine use. The 42 names of those killed in Montgomery
County due to traffic deaths were read aloud by RHS students.
Following the assembly, students were invited outside to view various
displays, including Life Flight from Vanderbilt/Gateway hospitals,
UPS (who has the safest driving record in the US), the EMS jaws of
life, a driving course using goggles that simulated alcohol use, Work
Force Essentials driving course information, a "roll-over"
demonstration from the TN State Trooper division, the "Meth Mobile"
from Fort Campbell, and other interactive displays. Following are
