With the New Year approaching, you might be planning on celebrating with friends and family. Whether you are celebrating at a house party with friends and family, or out at a city-sponsored event, taking some precautions will ensure that everyone enjoys their celebrations safely.
Traveling: If you are traveling, don’t drink and drive. If you have a friend who does not drink, ask them to be the designated driver. When you are driving be alert and aware of your surroundings.
Celebrating with Alcohol: If you are going to be celebrating with alcohol it is important to have a full stomach before drinking. Alternate drinks to stay hydrated, such as drinking juice, water or soda in between consuming alcoholic beverages.
Being in a crowd of people: If you are going to be in a crowd of people it is important to distant yourself from people who are being out of control or are intoxicated.
If you are hosting a party: If you are hosting a party call a cab company and book rides for your guests in advance. Knowing that all your guests got home safely leaves less stress and responsibility on you.
If you have pets: If you have pets it is important to show them extra attention. Loud noises can scare pets and make them panic and run. Keep pets in a comfortable room with soft music playing too drowned out any unusual noises.
