The Wentzville Fire Protection District and Safe & Sober Inc. put together an assembly to teach the students to be safe while at parties and making smart decisions on April 22, the day before juniors take on prom.

“We wanted to convey being safe and making good choices; no matter what you’re going to do, make a good choice and don’t make a choice that you are going to regret later or that will screw up your life,” Michael Scott said, who is Battalion Chief of Wentzville Fire Protection.

The Drama club acted out a skit and recreated a drunk driving car accident.

“It seemed really life like,” junior Katie Coyle said. “It was a typical high school scene so it really related to us.”

Juniors were informed that the car that was in the skit was from a real accident and they learned the story behind the accident. The fire department had mentioned that the person who was in the accident was a kid their age.

“It was pretty surprising, it was cool to hear about a real story, to know that this actually happens and it’s a real problem in our society today,” junior James Dotson said.

The assembly was an eye opener for many students and encouraged them to be safe and smart about their decisions.
