St. Patrick's Day Safety Tips
Predetermine a safe way to get home. Ensure everyone in your group has a safe means of returning home. Select a designated driver, arrange for a cab or Uber/Lyft, or plot a bus route. It might be a good idea to use the "buddy system"!
Be aware. If you're attending an event with a large crowd, such as a local St. Patty's Day parade, be aware of your surroundings and locate where you can go for help if necessary.
Eat. If you plan on consuming alcohol, make sure to get some nutrients in you.
Stay hydrated. Drinking enough water is always important, but especially today. Your body will thank you.
Don't bring valuables to any celebration. Only bring with you what is necessary, such as your driver's license, money, and a phone.
Be extra cautious on the roads. Just because you chose a safe means of transportation doesn't mean other people made the same decision. Whether you're driving or just crossing the street on foot, keep your awareness levels high.
