FRESHMAN IMPACT Today the students and faculty at Buffalo High School will be engaged in a MOCK crash event. There will be a mock crash scene at the high school involving multiple emergency vehicles and the Wyoming Life Flight helicopter. This is only a simulation, not an actual emergency. The Buffalo High School, Johnson County Sheriff's Office, Johnson County Ambulance, Wyoming Highway Patrol, and the Buffalo Police Department, will be using this scenario to educate students on the dangers of impaired driving. The scenario starts with a MOCK crash scene, the result of an "impaired" driver. The scenario then follows what happens as the driver is arrested and scene is assessed for injured or deceased passengers. Students will see the consequences of the poor choices made, when one decides to drive impaired.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

It’s that time of year again! When we celebrate our freedom by donning our Red White and Blue, bust out our BBQ’s, and recreate our national anthems “rockets’ red glare, bombs bursting in air” with fireworks! Except for those of us that remain within Buffalo’s city limits… we’re not allowed… fireworks that is (City Ordinance 16-12). Though we love to see our officers and local firefighters in action, let’s resist the temptation to lure them out by setting our neighbors yards on fire (or injuring ourselves) with our ground blasting triple screaming red devil mad dogs. If your celebrations are just not the same without some pyrotechnics (we get it), check out the Big Horn Equestrian Center for their Firework Extravaganza! One last thing, give a little extra love to your pets this holiday and keep them away from festivities that might scare them. No one wants to spend their holiday in jail, pets included. So make sure they are put somewhere they feel safe while you celebrate America! Just so we’re all on the same page… all noise-creating, spark-producing, explosive delights are prohibited within city limits. Make sure you're pets have an awesome 4th. As always, we wish you a safe and happy holiday!
