P.A.R.T.Y. is an interactive education program that exposes teens to a series of events:

  • listening to a presentation by Emergency Room Doctor with cause and affect of illicit drugs and alcohol,
  • viewing a crashed vehicle showing possible impact to the crash victim and the tasks of first responders at the crash scene,
  • seeing simulated patient care in the hospital trauma room,
  • experiencing different situations in patient’s rehabilitation,
  • learning the details of an autopsy,
  • watching a police supervised film with a series of bad decisions resulting in a crash and discussion of possible solutions,
  • hearing a personal story of a peer impacted by alcohol and a crash;

Island Health provides the venue. Volunteers from BC Ambulance Service, NRGH trauma nurses and doctors, RCMP Officers, Daybreak Rotarians and others community volunteers deliver the Central Island P.A.R.T.Y. Program and escort the students to the different venues.
