State Patrol to give county workers crash dynamic training

Posted: Updated:

At last night's County Commissioners meeting State Trooper Chuck Elley brought a new idea to the table.

Elley wants the county to offer free crash dynamic training for all county and city employees.

The Nebraska State Patrol considers Scotts Bluff as one of the 23 priority counties in the state.

Priorities counties are chosen from high ranks of fatal injury crashes, alcohol crashes and speed crashes.

Elley believes offering this training would help lower our fatality rates.

"Set up training at no cost, the training anyway's and the importance of wearing seatbelts, and so people have a visual understanding of how much force is in a motor vehicle crash," Elley said.

Elley says educating the community leaders will help trickle down to other members of the community.
