SAFESITTER Training | Mock DUI Crash Program | Community Events
The North Fork Ambulance is proud to offer the Safe Sitter® training program for local Middle School students in grades 6th - 8th to teach them the skills required to care for younger siblings or earn income while babysitting. The program teaches children the skills they need to care for themselves and younger children. Additionally, the program teaches young teens life and business skills so they know how to be prepared, responsible and considerate when they are babysitting or doing odd jobs.
- Thursday, July 25th - 9am to 3:30pm at the Ambulance Headquarters in Hotchkiss

To help keep students in the North Fork Valley safe and to give them a sobering reminder that underage consumption of alcohol, especially when paired with driving a motor vehicle has consequences, often deadly ones; the North Fork Ambulance Auxiliary will partner with North Fork EMS, the Colorado State Patrol, Delta County Sheriff’s Office and other public safety agencies in the North Fork Valley to bring a DUI crash scene to life in front of the students every other year. The next event is planned for the spring of 2020, just before prom and graduation.
The organizers of this event work closely with administrators from both the Hotchkiss High School and Paonia High School to plan and coordinate mock crashes every two years so we always have a new group of students to bring the message that alcohol and/or drugs and driving is a deadly combination with life-long consequences.
Below are some photos from the April 2018 Mock DUI Crash progrm that was put on by the following agencies on April 25, 2018 at Paonia High School for the student body of both Paonia and Hotchkiss High Schools.
