Murrieta Police Department to hold mock fatal DUI traffic collision at Murrieta Mesa High School

In collaboration with several other city and county emergency response agencies, the Murrieta Police Department will be hosting the Murrieta Mesa High School “Every 15 Minutes Program” on Thursday, April 18, at 11:50 a.m.

Sponsored by local businesses, this impactful program aims to simulate the consequences of impaired driving through a staged fatal DUI traffic collision on the grounds of the high school for the sophomore, junior, and senior class students to view.

This mock scene will involve numerous police, fire, and ambulance personnel responding to Murrieta Mesa High School with lights and sirens at 11:50 a.m. Additionally, a helicopter from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will be landing on the school grounds at 12:10 p.m. to airlift one of the “critically injured” student volunteer actors to a trauma center.

The program will conclude with a mock “funeral” presented at the sophomore, junior, and senior student body assembly on April 19 at 11:50 a.m.

This emotionally charged program is designed to dramatically instill in teenagers the potentially dangerous consequences of drinking alcohol and using drugs, and challenge students to think about drinking and drugs, safe operation of their automobiles, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions.
