‚ÄčCHP, Sheriff, Fire  Personnel join the High School



Life's lessons are best learned through experience. Unfortunately, when the target audience is teens and the topic is drinking and texting while driving, experience is not the teacher of choice.
The Every 15 Minutes Program offers real-life experience without the real-life risks. This emotionally charged program, entitled Every 15 Minutes, is an event designed to dramatically instill teenagers with the potentially dangerous consequences of drinking alcohol and texting while driving. This powerful program will challenge students to think about drinking, texting while driving, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions when lives are involved.    http://www.every15minutes.com/aboutus/


Tuesday June 2, 2015 beginning at 8:00 A.M., the Arrowhead California Highway Patrol in conjunction with the San Bernardino County Big Bear Sherriff & Deputies, the Big Bear Fire Department and the Big Bear High School will be conducting an Every 15 Minutes Safety presentation at Big Bear High School.  

The Every 15 Minutes Safety program is a vital part of developing effective educational strategies that address the circumstances that place adolescents at risk for underage drinking and driving under the influence.  The program is a school-based, alcohol prevention program that incorporates simulated alcohol related consequences with community elements that include students, parents, educators, school administrators, health systems, emergency services and law enforcement personnel.  

As a result of the Every 15 Minutes event, the street in front of the High School, Maple Lane will be closed between Big Bear Boulevard (SR-38) and Baldwin Lane.  The closure will start at 8:00 A.M. and will continue until 12:00 Noon. We urge the community to plan ahead and use alternate routes.
