Sgt. Ryan Nardone brought a powerful pre-prom presentation to juniors at Glen Cove High School prior to the junior prom. SAFE’s Glen Cove PRIDE Project Coalition’s School Committee invited Sgt. Nardone to speak to students about the ramifications of Social Host law and of the dangers of underage drinking and driving. His objective, to keep kids safe on prom night and throughout the year is an objective that SAFE’s Coalition is closely committed to. The implementation of this prevention education lecture was a direct result of the 2012 Bach Harrison Prevention Needs Assessment which indicated that underage drinking continues to be a problem among Glen Cove youth.
Also handed out at the presentation was SAFE Rides cards. In response the 2012 Bach Harrison prevention needs survey, the Coalition’s Parent Committee decided to team up with Student Lifeline, a local organization working to reduce the risks of underage drinking and driving through issuing SAFE Rides cards. After the presentation, free cards were given to students enabling them to avoid potential danger by calling for a ride home rather than taking the chance of driving with a peer who has been drinking.
