Joe McCluan and Scott McIntyre are firefighter paramedics from Orlando, Florida. On May 10, 2013, these two men came to speak to students about being street smart and how to be safe while driving. McCluan and McIntyre used demonstrations with students to get their point across about the dangers of driving and not wearing your seatbelt.

Joe McCluan starts out the assembly by telling students his name and his partners name. Next, he showed different images of car accidents and the people involved. He also explained his job as a firefighter paramedic. Photo by Cassy Salyards
