“We've never like intentionally been to a party where we know there's going to be a lot of drinking,” Jill also said. “I've been on the fire department for a few years, and there's people, young people, 18-year-old girls who have died of an OD. You see the effects, and it really makes you stop and think of the consequences for some of these actions.”
