JONES COUNTY, MISS. - Parents, family members and friends of students at Northeast Jones Elementary School and Middle School and Northeast Jones High School should not be concerned when you see, hear or hear about emergency vehicles responding to the football stadium tomorrow (Friday, April 6th) at approximately 9:00 AM. In light of current events at schools around the country and heightened anxieties, we want to make sure that everyone is aware that there will be a simulated vehicle crash involving a DUI driver and NEJ Prom students with emergency responders responding to and working the simulated crash scene just like they would a real crash - which involves responding with emergency lights and sirens. Emergency services units will stage at Powers Fire & Rescue fire station on Hwy. 184 and respond to Northeast Jones High School when dispatched by Jones County Emergency Operations Center 911 dispatchers to the mock crash scene.
Please SHARE with family and friends that this is a mock crash for the Northeast Jones High School Prom Promise program that will involve multiple emergency services agencies. Please do not be alarmed and know that this Prom Promise program has the great potential to save lives and change outcomes. Northeast Jones High School juniors and seniors, parents, teachers, staff and others will be the audience and will experience this life-changing program which has been fully endorsed and supported by Northeast Jones High School Supervising Principal Dr. Jennifer Lowery. This will be the fifth year that this innovative program has been presented at Northeast Jones High School.
