Youngsters gasped as Ramsey Rescue members sawed off doors and roofs of vehicles during a pair of mock vehicle extrications over the weekend.

Applause at ScoutFest erupted at one point as a roof was removed.

As entertaining as it was, the demonstration at Darlington County Park in Mahwah was still “a sobering visual to these youngsters about the risks of distracted and impaired driving, which is deadly serious business,” Ramsey Rescue President Michael Yevchak said.

Members also hope the event – which included tours of one of the heavy rescue trucks -- encourages youngsters and their parents “to volunteer in some way for the support of your communities,” Yevchak said.
