Bridgetown Mystery Tour of Life

The day also doubled as a life-like training session for police, ambulance, fire and hospital staff and volunteers.

This year, the day started at the St John Ambulance sub-centre with presentations, discussion and questions on road safety issues including speeding, distraction, fatigue, drink/drug driving and seatbelt use.

A vehicle crash scenario involving removal of an acting crash victim followed, with a session at the hospital rounding out the interactive part of the day. After a tasty lunch organised by the Country Womens' Association (CWA), there was an informative talk by two road crash survivors to help reinforce the key messages of the day.

Students were also given information on coping after road trauma from Road Trauma Support WA (RTSWA).

The Mystery Tour of Life is an annual activity coordinated by the Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes RoadWise Committee, supported by local police, St John Ambulance, the Fire and Emergency Services, the CWA and the Bridgetown Repertory Club.

Student feedback from the day was positive, with many students commenting on the value of the road safety messages which they felt complemented the schools' SDERA Keys for Life Program, which sees students working towards gaining their Learners’ Permit.
