Kevin Thomas, Law Enforcement & Security Tactics instructor at the Career Center, also spoke to the students about lab safety issues and general school safety procedures on the school grounds.

A film covering the importance of using seat belts was also shown, which included testimonials from sports and other public figures whose lives have been saved because they use their seat belts.
