Victoria Fire Department Fire Captain Nathan Ojeda bandages a student’s arm at the scene of a simulated drunken driving crash as part of the Shattered Dreams event at Victoria East High School on May 12. The event is hosted by VISD to teach students about the dangers of drunken driving. The Victoria Fire Department and the Victoria Police Department responded to the simulated wreck scene as they would to a real wreck, with firefighters providing medical attention to “injured” students and transporting them from the scene. Shattered Dreams is one of multiple fire safety programs offered by the Victoria Fire Marshal’s Office to promote safety through education and outreach. To learn more, visit www.victoriatx.gov/fire.
