Ring in 2014 safe and sound this New Year’s Eve. Whether you are traveling to a fun city, going to a large New Years Eve Ball or heading to a neighborhood bash, the number one safety concern revolves around one thing...alcohol. So to make sure your good time stays a safe time, remember these safety tips aka The Triple D’s:
DRINK RESPONSIBLY: Everyone knows NOT to Drink and Drive, but it can never be said enough. All it takes is one stupid decision and lives can be changed forever. Be sure to have a designated driver in place BEFORE you hit the road. If you are in a big city, set up a car service or get a taxi. There are great Transportation App’s that you can download on your smartphones and get a taxi or car service to you within minutes. However, New Year’s Eve is one of the busiest nights for these services so it’s best to book beforehand both to and from your party. DO HAVE DESSERT: Be sure to fill your belly with food along with your drinks. Make sure you have food in your system so the alcohol does not hit hard, and you become too intoxicated. Pace yourself, remember the phrase EAT, drink and be Merry!
DATE RAPE DRUG DANGERS:Be sure to watch your drink at all times! Whether you are at a large event or even a neighborhood party, you are never really safe from someone drugging your drink. GHB and Ketemine are the two top Date Rape Drugs used by criminals. The problem is, these drugs are odorless, tasteless and extremely hard to detect in drinks. Always watch your drink being poured, never drink out of a punch bowl or open container, and never let your glass out of your sight. The best advice: when in doubt, pour it out. Better safe than sorry, and for the best protection, take along the Safety Chick’s “Party Girl Watch your Cocktail” Date Rape Coasters available at: http://www.sabrered.com/4/20/18/781024/store/safetychick/
