If you were near Kent County High School this morning around 10am, you may have been wondering why all the fire engines, ambulances and the Medi-Vac Helicopter was there. The Kent County High School along with assistance from many of the county’s Fire Companies, the Sheriff’s Office, FHM Funeral Home, State Police and others held a Mock Accident recreation for the Junior and Seniors. Tomorrow May 20th is Prom and the purpose of this recreation was to provide students with information on the consequences of impaired driving and promote safe driving choices.
