‘Cheat the Reaper’ Event

South-Florida-logo

The RASG Hebrew Academy staged “Cheat the Reaper,” on October 30. The program is an award-winning effort to alert high school students about the hazards of both drinking and driving and texting and driving.

Members of the police and fire departments and Hebrew Academy students simulated an auto accident staged in front of the school’s Fana Holtz High School campus, located at 2425 Pine Tree Drive. The event utilized video, live scene acting and makeup artists to bring the dangers and realities of drunk driving and texting and driving to the attention of students.

Members of the Miami Beach Fire Rescue Team and Police Department tend to mock accident victims.

As part of the scenario, all agencies that would normally be called upon to respond to this type of incident did what they normally would do. The police responded and performed the accident investigation, sobriety test and arrest. Fire rescue extricated the “victims,” stabilized them and transported them to the hospital. Funeral home attendants carried and loaded the “deceased” into a hearse.

Only the student actors and a few key personnel knew the “accident” would be staged, making the event a powerful and realistic experience to the onlookers.

For more information about this meaningful and important lesson contact Isaac Sochaczewski at (305)532-6421 ext. 136 or at isochaczewski@rasg.org.

The RASG Hebrew Academy is an Orthodox Jewish college and yeshiva preparatory school serving students from through grade 12. The Hebrew Academy’s goal is to inspire and equip students to achieve their fullest potential both academically and spiritually and instilling eternal Torah values in a changing world.
