Being safe on a night out
At Hunter Richards Security our safety is paramount,
See our quick guide so you can have a fun and safe evening,
Go out in groups and make a plan about getting home.
Decide the number of drinks you will have prior to drinking and stick to it.
Count the number of drinks and spread them out over the evening!
Space drinks to one or less per hour.
Alternate alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and drink plenty of water.
Agree before you go out who will be the sober driver.
Watch your friends--if you came together and want to leave make sure
they have a plan to get home safely.
Avoid drinking games.
Always eat before and during alcohol consumption.
Remember: Women are more sensitive to the effects of alcohol.
Pour your own drinks--don't share with others or set yours down.
Have a designated driver.
Never drink and drive.
Never ride with someone who has been drinking or using drugs.
Say "no thanks," if you don't want to continue drinking, or just hold a cup with a non-alcoholic beverage.
Participate in activities like dancing, talking, and eating to take the focus off alcohol.
Hosting a party
Remember to keep the noise level down if you have neighbours in close proximity.
Collect keys at the door.
You, as the host, are responsible for keeping your guests' safety. You may be liable if anyone is injured.
Do not allow an intoxicated person to continue to consume alcoholic beverages.
Serve plenty of high-protein, non-salty food like cheese and meat--these foods stay in the stomach longer, slowing down the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream.
Provide non-alcoholic beverages.
Stop serving alcohol about 1 hour before the party is over.
Have impaired friends spend the night or find your guests rides.
Stay sober yourself.
Remember that you might have to deal with an emergency.
