“Organizations that participated in the mock crash were WSP, Toledo Police Dept, Toledo Fire Dept, Brown Mortuary Service, Lewis County Sheriff's Office, the Corner’s and Prosecutor’s Office. I believe the students of the “Two Hands On the Wheel” group from the high school were the ones that put the whole thing together with the help of Principal Martin Huffman and Matt Schlecht, Deputy with Lewis County Sheriff's Office.
“Nine Fire Department volunteers participated with one engine and two ambulances. The kids who participated from the high school were 6 girls and 2 boys.
“The Fire Department used the JAWs of Life (an extrication tool) to open a door of one of the wrecked cars to export a patient. They may have used other things as well.
“The Chronicle was on hand and did a pretty good write up on March 12, 2016!
“I believe the “Two Hands on the Wheel” kids did a really great job making all this possible. It really opened up the eyes of everyone involved.”
