St. Patrick’s Day Safety Reminder

Don’t run out of luck on St. Patrick’s Day! The I.I.I. offers the following tips on how to have a safe and successful celebration.

ESTABLISH AT THE START OF THE PARTY WHO THE DESIGNATED DRIVERS ARE. Make an extra effort to see that anyone who has had too much to drink doesn’t drive.

ALWAYS EAT OR SERVE FOOD WITH ALCOHOL. It is proven that food can help counter the effects of alcohol.

HAVE A VARIETY OF BEVERAGES AVAILABLE. As the evening goes on, shift to non-alcoholic beverages. Serve coffee or tea towards the end of the party.

IF A GUEST HAS HAD TOO MUCH TO DRINK, CALL A CAB OR PUT HIM OR HER UP FOR THE NIGHT. If you have a “sleepover,” you can memorize all the verses to Danny Boy.

IF DRIVING, WEAR YOUR SEATBELT. It’s no blarney, seatbelts do save lives.

Brewers estimate 13 million pints of Guinness will be consumed on St. Patrick’s Day – but none by motorists, we hope! Thank you for doing your part to create a safe celebration.
