Safety tips for graduation and prom

Spring time has finally arrived, bringing with it the time of year when high school seniors have one special event after another. Many of the celebrations, including prom and graduation, are associated with a higher chance students will indulge in an alcoholic beverage or two. This may lead careless behavior including  getting behind the wheel or riding in a car with someone else who may have been drinking, putting themselves and many others at risk.

Here are some safety tips to keep in mind during graduation and prom season:

  • Discuss graduation and after-prom plans, including locations and contact numbers with your parents
  • Stick with a group of friends
  • Fully charge your cell phone
  • Bring extra money for a cab
  • Do not get in a car with a driver who has been drinking
  • Do not drink and drive
  • Wear your seatbelt
  • Do not leave your beverages or food unattended
  • If necessary, call your parents for a ride

If you are the one throwing the party, do not serve any alcoholic beverages. Instead, offer a variety of non-alcoholic beverages.

Keep these tips in mind when celebrating.  Wishing you a happy and safe graduation and prom!
