We welcome you to ride with us to see what we do first hand.  To learn more ask anyone in a Williamson County EMS uniform or use the contact below.

Shattered Dreams DUI Education

The Shattered Dreams Team is composed of WCEMS personnel. Shattered Dreams is a program that is performed by area High School students, WCEMS, local fire and police departments. A mock collision and extrication is demonstrated to the junior and senior students to heighten their awareness of the consequences of driving while intoxicated.  These are usually performed just before prom, Spring break or Summer serving as a reminder to be safe at times when teens are more likely to celebrate with alcohol.  See the calendar below for upcoming public events.

To schedule an event, contact:
