BRICK-Last week, Brick Township Memorial High School held their Project Crash. The Brick Township Police Department, Brick Township Police Emergency Medical Service, the Ocean County Prosecutors Office, Laurelton Fire Department, Herbertsville Fire Department, the DART coalition and Weatherhead Young Funeral Home participated in “Project Crash”.
Nina Rettino, the Student Assistance Coordinator organized this event with students and the above listed agencies.
This program illustrates to High School students the potential horrors and dangers that occur when people drink and drive. Today’s reenactment was of a tragic crash that occurred while students were travelling to an after party from the Prom and the driver was under the influence of alcohol. The event also addressed the dangers of distracted/texting and driving.
The Brick Township Police Department would like to thank all of the students and agencies that participated in this event. We would also like to thank Brick Recycling for donating the vehicles and Joes Service Center for towing the vehicles to and from the event. Jersey Mike Subs donated subs for the student’s lunch. Have a safe and fun Prom.
