Celebrate Safely on New Years Eve


New Year’s Eve safety can help you have a fun and safe celebration of the coming year. With COVID-19 still impacting individuals throughout the world, it’s important to consider New Year’s Eve safety when planning for this upcoming holiday. Here are some few safety tips.

On New Year’s Eve, you don’t have to leave your house to have a great time. If you’re hosting guests, here are some ways to ensure everyone can kick off the new year in style:

• Consider your liquor liability. There’s nothing like ringing in the new year with a glass of champagne. But if you plan to serve alcohol, be a responsible host by making sure nobody gets behind the wheel of a car.
• Plan your activities. To keep your party running smoothly, have a list of games or activities that don’t involve alcohol.
• Serve plenty of food. If you’re staying up until midnight, expect lots of snacking to take place throughout the evening.
• Keep your guest list tight. When hosting a party in your home, it’s always a good idea to limit guests to people you actually know.
• Designate a driver. Encourage your guests to choose a designated driver before they arrive. Whether a friend is driving, or they choose to use Uber or Lyft.
• Shelve the fireworks. Avoid the temptation to start the new year off with a “bang.” Fireworks can lead to house fires and injuries.

Chances are, there will be parties happening around your city. If you choose to spend the night away from home, here are some tips to help you get back safely:

• Designate a driver. If you’re planning to celebrate with alcohol, decide how you’ll be getting home before your first drink.
• Celebrate with friends. There’s safety in numbers.
• Charge your phone. Before you head out for a night on the town, make sure your phone is fully charged.
• Eat before you leave. Not planning to go out for a full meal? Be sure to eat before you leave.
• Don’t leave your car overnight.
