"Emotionally-charged" program to deter students from driving drunk

(Jackson, Wyo.) - If you see lights and sirens in front of Jackson Hole High School tomorrow, don't worry it is just a simulation. Tomorrow is the S.L.A.M. (Simulated Live Action Melodrama) "Every Fifteen Minutes" program. The program, which is held every four years, is a collaborative effort between the Teton County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson Police Department, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS, and Wyoming Highway Patrol. The two-day event features scenes on Wednesday and Thursday at Jackson Hole High School. According to a letter sent to the students of JHHS, "It is an emotionally charged program that has the goal of creating lasting impacts upon teenagers who are making life choices regarding not only their safety, but also the safety of others." The letter goes on to state that, "It engages parents and their kids on levels that can evoke extreme emotion for all in attendance. The content may be upsetting to some, especially those who have had a personal experience in a vehicle accident." *Feature Photo: h//t Pixabay / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
