PADDD Class Outline

Our program utilizes local speakers and is a collaboration of the medical field, recovered trauma patients, families and law enforcement/EMS personnel. Participants go through the program that is tailored for impaired, aggressive and distracted driving issues.

Presentation can be tailored to individual needs.

Sample 3-Hour Program

FIRST HOUR
"Major Trauma Centers Perspective of Impaired and Reckless Driving"
Experienced Nurse and Police officer educates students on poor driving practices that have resulted in injury and death. The police officer uses powerpoint to review laws, safe driving practices. The nurse provides information on emergency nursing care and the true cost of impaired and reckless driving.  

SECOND HOUR

    Positive Choices 4 Life is created as an alternative sentencing program for teens who can benefit from practical lessons in injury prevention. The leading cause of death in teens is accidents (unintentional injuries).  According to the CDC, one-third of all deaths is due to motor vehicle crashes and overdoses. A new trend among teens is vaping. According to the NIH vaping devices are popular and the most commonly used form of nicotine among youth in the United States. The new trend is vaping marijuana and presents a new group of health concerns including serious lung injury and in a few cases death. This is a 2 ½ hour class taught by professional staff with a background in injury prevention. Parents are encouraged to attend as well as siblings at no additional charge.
