As you prepare to celebrate the New Year, Danville Life Saving Crew encourages you to be responsible and think about your safety. Here are four simple tips to help you safely ring in 2019.
Never drink alcohol and drive. Always have a designated sober driver or arrange for an Uber or taxi to take you home.
If drinking alcohol, stay hydrated. Alternate alcohol with non-alcoholic beverages like water to prevent dehydration.
If going to a public event, attend with a friend or group. Never attend public events alone.
Be responsible if setting off fireworks. Never point them towards anyone and stay away from dry wooded areas and homes.
If a medical emergency, car wreck, fire, robbery or assault occurs, immediately dial 911.
