Hosting a party? A few simple rules could prevent a tragedy:

  • Plan ahead by naming a “designated driver.” Make this your responsibility as the host.
  • Contact a local cab company to provide rides for your guests.
  • Serve non-alcoholic beverages as an option to your guests.
  • Stop serving alcohol to your guests several hours before the party ends.
  • Provide your guests the option to stay overnight in your home

Going out?

  • If you drink, don’t drive.
  • Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before the party or celebration begins.
  • If you are impaired, call a taxi, use mass transit, or get a sober friend or family member to come pick you up.
  • Save the phone number to a local licensed cab service in your cell phone
  • Or, stay where you are until you are sober.
  • Take the keys from someone if you think he/she is too impaired to drive.

Drinking? Don’t leave your drink unattended where someone could put something in it

Happy New Year My Friends and stay safe  !!
