“Every 30 Minutes”

“Every 30 minutes”

Lafayette High School 2018

The “Every 30 Minutes” national program is an interactive two day event that educates high school students by identifying problems associated with their  driving, socializing, and alcohol-related activities. It is the intent of this program to help the individual student understand that their behavior has a rippling effect on those around them: family, friends, classmates, etc.  The program’s name was derived from the fact that every thirty minutes in the United  States at least one person is killed as a result of an alcohol-related incident to include alcohol-related traffic crashes.

The James City County Police Department, in particular the School Resource Unit, work in partnership with the Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools. In addition, many other agencies and local businesses come together to create a mock fatal crash involving alcohol. The participants are high school students. The program involves Sentara hospital, WJCC courthouse, Nelsons funeral home, and JCC Fire Departments. Parents and friends of the participants are involved in the two-day event. This year the event is at LHS!!
