EMS encourages prom safety

Posted: Updated:
THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

EMS workers handed out key chains at Thomasville high schools hoping to encourage teens to play it safe this prom weekend.

 They are hoping that the key chain will remind students to buckle up while enjoying themselves, and that it will also discourage them from drinking and driving while also serving as a keepsake.

"We came out today to remind all of the students that this is not the uniform you want to see this weekend," said Paramedic Daniel Warren.

The EMS workers says while they are dedicated to doing their jobs when called upon they'd rather emphasize the importance of preventing tragedy if possible.
