Stay Safe This New Year’s Eve with These Tips

Keep these New Year’s Eve safety tips in mind.

New Year’s Eve is one of the most exciting holidays around.  While you might be preoccupied with exciting thoughts of celebrations and parties, there are still certain risks associated with this holiday.  Don’t let an accident or injury ruin your New Year’s Eve; try out these safety tips to protect yourself this holiday.

Alcohol Safety

New Year’s Eve is synonymous with alcohol.  If you are planning of drinking on New Year’s Eve, keep these safety tips in mind.  First, you should never accept an open drink from anyone but a professional bartender.  Additionally, you shouldn’t leave your drink unattended.  Unfortunately, there are many instances of people’s drinks getting spiked or drugged.  If you so much as suspect that your drink has been tampered with, throw it away immediately.

Driving Safety

You should never get behind the wheel of a car if you’ve had something to drink.  Drunk driving is illegal and it places you and innocent bystanders at risk.  If you are planning on drinking, make sure you rely on a designated driver, call a cab, or use a ride sharing service such as Uber or Lyft.  Additionally, you should also make sure that your friends do not drive while under the influence.  While you might risk their anger by taking their keys, it’s better than letting them risk their lives and the lives of others.

Firework Safety

Finally, do not play with fireworks on New Year’s Eve.  For starters, using fireworks is illegal in many states.  Even if they are not illegal in your state, incorrect handling of fireworks can result in severe burns, other injuries, and can even start a fire.  This New Year’s Eve, it’s much safer to leave the fireworks to the professionals.
