Pupils at St Killian’s College, Carnlough, were given a stark reminder of the carnage faced by firefighters at the scene of a road traffic collision during a re-enactment in the school grounds recently.

The mock scenario staged by Translink, in partnership witht the Northern Irelan Fire and Rescue Service, involving a school bus, was staged to remind pupils of the very seriuos potential consequences of forgetting to wear their seatbelts while travelling.

The ‘incident’ was also a valuable training exercise for the emergency services, with 30 pupils from the school acting as ‘casualties’ to be rescued.
