“Every 15 Minutes” was held at Boulder City High School last Thursday. For anyone not familiar with the program, it is a realistic portrayal of the life-ending and life-changing impact of drunk driving.
Every other year, the program is held for sophomore and junior high school students by the Rotary Club of Boulder City, the Police Department, Fire Department, Clark County Coroner’s Office, Mercy Air, Boulder City Family Mortuary and a host of other organizations who believe kids will think twice about not only drinking and driving, but getting into a car with someone who is under the influence.
In 2011, I missed the first few minutes – so this year, I arrived 20 minute early and was able to get some photos of the collision scene set-up, especially of the amazing high school kids involved.

They are very impactful and while we all KNOW that the collision is staged and the blood is fake — be forewarned that some of the images in the below slideshow are gross. Intentionally, to be certain.
