Safely enjoy your new years celebrations with these tips.
As 2015 comes to an end and 2016 ramps up, you may be looking for the perfect way to ring in the new year. To help you start off the new year on the right foot, keep these new years safety tips in mind.
Keep your drink with you at all times and do not take an open drink that is offered to you. If you have to go to the bathroom, take your drink with you or give it to a trusted friend. While there is nothing wrong with enjoying a couple cocktails during your celebration, make sure to do it responsibly so that you can stay safe.
If you will be drinking during the celebration, do not get behind the wheel. Even one drink can be enough to inhibit your driving abilities. Have a designated sober ride home before you head out for the night or keep the number of a cab company handy. You can also download a ridesharing app, such as Uber or Lyft, to get you home safely.
Going out in a group will help you stay safe during all of your fun. Always stay in a group and don’t get separated. Make sure to keep your phone fully charged so that you can stay in contact with your friends if you do get separated.
Pets can easily get scared during new years’ celebrations and all the loud noises. Keep your pets inside in a safe area so that they don’t run away if they get scared. Consider keeping a radio or TV on in your house to distract them from any noises.
