New Year’s Eve is an exciting time for many of us.

Unfortunately, this also comes with an increased risk of danger.

Follow these tips to practice safety tonight:

  • Designate a sober driver if you plan to drink.
  • Wear brightly colored clothing, so you can be seen.
  • Avoid walking alone, especially at night.
  • Stay in well-lit and populated areas.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and the people around you.
  • Stay with your group of friends and stay together.
  • If you are going to an unfamiliar area, have a plan of action and know where you are going.
  • Have a charged cell phone with you.
  • Do not leave your drinks unattended.
  • Use public transportation, such as a bus or train, to get to and from your destination.

Happy New Year!
