VR event raises Road Safety awareness

Year 13 pupils have taken part in an eye opening event which seeks to raise awareness among those of driving age on the potential dangers that can arise on the roads.

The event was run by the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and used Virtual Reality headsets to provide an immersive environment for the pupils taking part.

Upon donning the headsets pupils found themselves as a passenger in a car with a group of friends. However, what started out as a normal drive, quickly turned into a road traffic accident to which the emergency services were called.

Through the headsets the pupils were able to experience not only the lead up to the accident but also how the Fire and Rescue Service extricate a person from a badly damaged vehicle.

Before the accident the driver was speeding and looking at images on phone from rear seat passengers.  When they woke up they could look down and see blood on their legs and the airbag inflated.  Paramedics and fire service then arrived to tend to the injured and cut the roof of the car. 

Head of Year 13, Mr McKay, said: “Feedback from Year 13 was very positive.  They thought that the VR made them think about not only the consequences of their driving but also that of others when they were passengers.  Thanks to Michael and the team from the Fire and Rescue Service for delivering the event.”
