On Monday 18 April the PARTY program was held at Euroa Secondary College.

The PARTY Program (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth) aims to reduce the risk of young people being involved in road accidents.

All Year 10 and 11 students were involved in a program that involved a scenario with a crashed car, with SES, CFA and the police doing their job at an accident scene.

Longwood Fire Brigade attended thanks to Shaun Hearmon, Euroa SES attended thanks to Tony Kubiel and Joel Hughes from Euroa Police was also on scene to assist.

Unfortunately, Ambulance Victoria had to leave to attend an emergency.

The day began with the SES and CFA helping to extract Jim Cerini, the school Lab technician and SES member, from a car that had been in an accident. It showed the students what will happen if they find themselves in a car accident requiring extraction.

After the extraction the students went into the LEARNIT for a Q&A session about road safety and keeping alcohol and driving apart. Also the representatives from the agencies spoke about what they do at an accident scene.

As some have seen, WIN News and the Euroa Gazette were in attendance as well.

The event was organised by Tyson Huggins, a Year 11 student.
