ENCARE Program Available at PMC
Providence Medical Center staff initiated the local ENCARE program for this region in the fall of 2003 after experiencing several tragic crashes which resulted in the death and disability of area teens.
PMC emergency nurses, EMTs and those who deal with crash victims are available to visit schools throughout the area, as well as driver's education classes, court/probation sessions, churches, clubs and community groups delivering hard-hitting, eyewitness accounts of how alcohol abuse and the lack of seatbelt use ruins lives and can cause trauma in a family...forever!
The presentation is available to all age groups, 7th grade through adult, and includes slides/videos, information on alcohol and its effects, binge drinking, alcohol and motor vehicle crashes, safety belt use, decision-making skills and consequences and stories shared by a panel of survivors and EMS responders.
For more information, please feel free to contact Jodi Thompson at Providence Medical Center at (402) 375-3800.
