NEJ Prom Promise - A Mock Autombile Accident
to Raise Awareness of the Effects of Driving Impaired/Distracted

On Friday, April 28, 2017, the Junior and Senior classes of Northeast Jones High School had the opportunity to see the impact of impaired/distracted driving by witnessing what takes place in the moments after a tragic automobile accident. A mock automobile accident involving the head on collision of an automobile with 4 high school students and a truck with a drunk driver was staged at the football field on the campus of Northeast Jones. Thank you to the following agencies that made this event possible: Jones County Volunteer Fire Departments from the NEJ communities of Glade, M&M (Myrick and Mill Creek), Powers, Rustin, and Sandersville, Jones County Sheriff's Department, EMServ Ambulance Service, Jones County Coroner's Office, Jones County District Attorney's Office, Jones County Emergency Managment, Memory Chapel Funeral Home, Mississippi Highway Patrol, and Rescue 7 Air Ambulance in addition to students playing the roles of the occupants in the automobile and adult community members playing the roles of the impaired/drunk driver and family members of the accident victims.

A special thank you to Intrepid Production Studios and Caleb Worrell with the Jones County Fire Council for your support of our students and community by producing the video from Prom Promise and to WDAM Television.
