Poultney & Proctor High School Safety Fair

Lt. Kevin Geno, Rutland County Sheriff’s Department and the VHSA joined forces to plan and staff a Driver's Safety event at Poultney High School. Students from Poultney and Proctor High attended a mock crash in order to show the dangers of distracted driving. In addition, the students watched a roll over demonstration showing the effects of safety belt use, participated in a driver's safety quiz game, and watched a demonstration of what to do when pulled over by police. Participants included Operation Life Saver and Poultney Rescue, Durfee Funeral Home, the Poultney Medical Examiner, Poultney Fire Department, and Poultney EMS and Fire Department. Heritage Automotive Group provided funding and sponsorship for the event.
