Mock Wreck Meant To Save Lives

Students watch as the air evacuation helicopter lands at the scene of the mock wreck prom skit just behind Hamburg High School on the afternoon of Thursday, April 20. 

On Thursday, April 20, the students of Hamburg High School witnessed what could happen when drivers take their focus off the road.

Hamburg Fire and Rescue, ProMed Ambulance Service, Hamburg Police Department, Ashley County Sheriff’s deputies, Arkansas State Police Troop F, Air Evacuation team members, Ashley County Office of Emergency Management, and Jones-Hartshorn Funeral Home participated in the annual prom skit/mock multiple vehicle accident at Hamburg High School. 

Penny Mashburn of Hamburg School District coordinates this annual event with the first responders. The mock wreck skit is designed to educate the students by showing them firsthand what the scene of an accident looks like.
