Is It Worth It?
The Calico Rock School EAST Program has teamed up with the local police departments, fire departments, Community Medical Center of Izard County, Ozark EMS, Air-Evac, Survival Flight, Drama Club and the Art Club to stage a mock crash at 9:00 am on April 12, 2016.
This event is staged to represent the dangers of texting while driving.
The local emergency personnel will use this event to help prepare for real-life accidents that could happen in our community. This will allow them to test response times and will be used as a training exercise.
The school district will test the use of the RAVE Panic Alert System which allows school personnel to have immediate access to 911 using their smart phone in case of an emergency on school grounds.
