A Tazewell County high school is doing its part to keep alcohol away from students on prom night.
EMT students at Richlands High School are emphasizing the message "Don't drink and drive on Prom Night," by putting together a live re-enactment of a car crash, graveside rites and a court scene.
The skits have been performed all week in front of the entire student body.
A video clip of Jacqueline Absurd, a teen who was badly burned in a crash by a drunk 17-year-old driver, was also shown to students.
Other related activities included sharing letters from elementary students urging high school students not to drink and drive.
Bracelets were also distributed to students who signed a pledge not to drink and drive on prom night.
Several emergency crews participated in the mock crash, including the Richlands Fire Department, Richlands Rescue Squad and the Richlands Police Department.
The scenarios featured a crash victim being extracted from a vehicle and a patient being med-flighted out of Ernie Hicks Stadium.
The mock crash was performed Friday, May 4, at the stadium at Richlands High School.
