  • Every 15 Minutes: Every Fifteen Minutes is a community-based program involving a partnership of health, safety, and emergency services from throughout Sonoma County. A simulated car crash is staged on the high school campus and through student-centered experiences that transpire over the course of two days, the entire student body participates in a lesson concerning the devastation and heartache that can be caused as a result of teen choices to drink and drive. In Spring 2013 this program was presented on the Piner High School campus in a moving and highly impactful way. The video is of the "car accident" that was staged for the students of Piner High School in order to engage them in a teachable moment focused on the negative impacts of drinking and driving. Link to video.
