Make-believe with a message

Published Oct. 1, 2005

A Spring Hill Fire and Rescue worker checks Colleen Berry and Mike Dixon in a mock accident scene Tuesday morning at the Springstead High School stadium. The department tried to make its drunken-driving re-enactment called "Prom Promise" as realistic as possible.

Rescuers remove the "body" of Rachel Paulin and place her in front of the students gathered in the stands so all could see.

After getting out of one of the smashed-up cars, Steve Florio and Liz Hogeland nervously watch further rescue efforts.
