A Safety World section is part of the event, which includes all the aspects of dealing with a crash scene. Included in Safety World are Road Rangers, EMS personnel, Tow Truck Operators, the Florida Highway Patrol Seat Belt Convincer, Rollover Simulator and DUI goggles.

The students observed how EMS personnel treat the injured, how they use the Jaws of Life to open vehicle and how the wrecker companies up right overturned vehicles and how Road Rangers clean up the scene.
