Travis Daugherty, Blaine co Sheriff, has put together a program, Arrive Alive Tour, for ALL Blaine co Jr’s and Sr’s (OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AS WELL) hosted at Watonga HS. April 19th, 10a-3p . The Arrive Alive tour is going to face the distracted driving issue by providing students, and the public, an educational experience; a Sober and Electronic Free Driving “VISUAL” Education. State Farm is sponsoring and providing a Truck and Drunk Driving simulated car from OSU program Sober and Free of Electronics. They will be having a “mock distracted driving” accident complete with wrecked vehicles, actors, ambulance, parents of the victims arriving on the horrific scene, OHP on scene, a helicopter lifting the victims, and also an officer/coroner pronouncing a victim (teenager) deceased. This will be a VERY Impactful event on students, parents, teachers, and the communities that are in attendance.
Many of our local businesses and a few businesses in other communities are pledged to participate either through sponsorship, with the food provided to the 260 student attendees from the Blaine co schools, the T-shirts that will be given to the students (sold to the community), or donation made to continue this program each year. The hosting participants are, Blaine County Sheriff Office, Sheriff Travis Daugherty, Watonga Public Schools, State Farm Insurance/OSU OKC, Representative Mike Dobrinski, Tom Robins with Energizesafety.com, fire personnel from Watonga and Hydro their administrators Kirk Harman, Mike Carlin, Perry Sheffler, and Robert Daugherty, OHP, Blaine County Courts, and several local business and organization sponsors making the event successful and impactful.
