Wyoming Medical Center Trauma and Injury Prevention Programs participate in a program called, PARTY, Preventing Alcohol Related Trauma in Youth. This program is focused on educating the community's youth about the dangers of impaired and distracted driving. The drunk buster karts along with 6 "impairment goggles" that vary in impairment (drug, alcohol, LSD, and sleep impairment) are paired with a course outlined by cones for the participants to take their turns completing the course while being distracted by cell phones, talking and of course the impairment goggles themselves.
WMC staff was presented with an opportunity to bring their Drunk Buster Karts to the conference and to provide a brief presentation on the program. This was a great addition to the 49th Annual Trauma & EMS Conference. We appreciate all of your hard work in your community as well as during the conference.
See pictures below from some of the fun that the Drunk Buster Karts brought to the conference.
If you or your colleagues have any photos or videos of the Drunk Buster Karts in action, please share them on social media using #OEMSTC.
