Platteville Fire Explorers and Platteville firefighters held a mock crash at Platteville High School Wednesday to promote prevention of drunk driving and texting while driving. 

The scenario featured two vans, one driven by a drunk driver (Patrick Haas), hitting head-on, with one person (Josh Bloom) killed, one (Michael Prestegard) sustaining serious injuries, and the drunk driver arrested. Fire Explorers Zach Dean (as the 911 caller) and Marty O’Neill (as the driver of the flipped-over van) also participated. 

The Fire Explorers will have an open house May 22.
