Air Force and community unite to save teenagers' lives

Patrick Air Force Base Fire and Emergency Services along with Brevard County emergency workers put on a dramatic reenactment of a tragic car accident during a driver safety event held at Patrick Air Force Base April 1-3. For the third year in a row the 920th Rescue Wing and 45th Space Wing, in partnership with the local community, hosted Operation Not on Our Watch, a county-wide event that educates teenagers on the dangers of distracted driving. Led by Air Force Reservist Senior Master Sgt. Rene Rubiella, the program included a re-enactment of an auto accident including deployment of the local police, fire and EMS responders and a behind-the-scenes look at trauma center medical teams working to save lives. More than 4,000 Brevard County high schools seniors attended the three-hour event each day at Patrick Air Force Base. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Capt. Cathleen Snow)
