Jaffrey Fire, Jaffrey Police, Jaffrey DPW, Rindge Fire, Rindge Police, Jaffrey Rindge Ambulance. Peterborough Fire Rescue, SWNH Fire Mutual Aid, Cournoyer Funeral Home and Gauthier Auto Service all worked together today to put on the 2nd annual Project Crash at Conant High School.

Project Crash was started in 2012 and this is the 2nd year that the local Emergency Responders have put on this mock Motor Vehicle Accident Program for the Students and Staff of Conant High School in Jaffrey.

The purpose of this program is to give the students an up close view of the potential circumstances that can result from a person driving under the influence and what is involved during this type of emergency and the injuries or death that can occur. Pictures provided by Jaffrey Fire/Rescue.
