Announcements and Press Releases
Every four years, the Thetford Volunteer Fire Department conducts a "mock crash" at Thetford Academy. The purpose of this event is to show the students what is involved in a severe motor vehicle crash, the steps involved to remove and treat patients, and the consequences of distracted and impaired driving. This event coincides with a morning assembly at the school in which a guest speaker presents their experiences with impaired and distracted driving. This is a powerful event that has had lasting effects on our students. 4-5 students are also chosen to play the part of patients, complete with special effects makeup to simulate injuries. Our most recent event at TA was May 8. 2015.
