"Save a Life" Tour at St. Mary's College

The National Make A Difference "Save A Life" Tour Uses New Drunk Driving Simulator For High-Tech Alcohol Awareness

The students of St. Mary's College of Maryland will experience the devastating effects of drinking and driving with the National Make A Difference "Save A Life" Tour on Wednesday, September 7th, 2005, from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, at the Campus Center, located at 18592 East Fisher Road, in St. Mary's City, Maryland.

"Edu-tainment" by Kramer, Inc. and FAAC, Inc. have joined forces in a national campaign to promote alcohol awareness and discourage drinking and driving.

The new Drunk Driving Simulator featured in the "Save A Life" Tour, uses the same state-of-the-art technology that is currently being used to train many of our nation's military and police. Participants experience first-hand the dulling effects of alcohol. The simulator fully immerses participants in a totally unscripted environment with a 1800 field of vision, and features over 87 miles of roadway; intelligent, random traffic; and, fully controllable environmental variables for time of day and weather conditions. Participants begin the experience 'sober'. The simulator's handling changes throughout the experience to represent simulated levels of impairment. Large 8' x 10' projection monitors display both a driver's and a helicopter view, along with the driver's simulated level of impairment, allowing each simulation to impact participants and spectators alike. Ongoing multi-media presentations and an actual casket display bring home the permanent and life changing impact of drinking and driving.

"Edu-tainment" by Kramer, Inc., a division of Kramer Entertainment, Inc., of Grand Rapids, Michigan, is the nation's largest provider of exclusive, high-tech, interactive attractions and entertainment. The company facilitates an average of 5,000 events annually nationwide. FAAC, Inc., of Ann Arbor, Michigan, a division of Aerotech of Auburn, Alabama, is the nation's leader in real-time training simulation for military, weapons and driver training.
