May 23, 2016 11:39 AM
Through a State Farm® Celebrate My Drive grant, the Trauma/Surgical Critical Care & Injury Prevention Section at HackensackUMC held a SAFETY SIMulator presentation for Immaculate Conception High School students. The SAFETY SIMulator allowed participants to drive safely under many diverse and adverse conditions, including snow, fog and heavy traffic. Meliam Gonzales, RN, trauma prevention coordinator in the Trauma/Surgical Critical Care & Injury Prevention Section at HackensackUMC says the simulator allows participants to feel first-hand how alcohol impairs the ability to steer and brake, and also shows the danger when other drivers are impaired.
