The assembly is being held in partner with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue and several organizations at Gaither High School.
Students will start in the auditorium at 8:35 a.m. for an overview and to understand more about what they will see during the assembly. They will then move to the school’s stadium just before 9 a.m. for the visual presentation. Students will see visuals of an accident, they will witness as crews from Hillsborough Fire Rescue and deputies from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office respond to the scene. A helicopter will be flown in to take the “victims” to a trauma center.
The assembly is a stark example of the consequences that can occur from drinking alcohol or using illicit substances, especially during Prom season and Graduation. Gaither High School is located at 16200 N. Dale Mabry Hwy., Tampa.
