Health and Safety Information

ALCOHOL SAFETY

You don’t have to drink to have fun, but if you do choose to:

  1. Eat before and after the event.
  2. Alternate between alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
  3. Keep track of the number of drinks you have (especially the amount of liquor). Determine in advance the number of drinks you will consume, and stick to it! Keep in mind that one drink is a 12 oz beer, 5 oz of wine, or 1.5 oz of liquor.
  4. Tell your friends to let you know when you’ve had too much to drink.
  5. Pace your drinks to one or less per hour, and avoid drinking games.
  6. Don’t take (or give) unwanted peer pressure
  7. Have a designated driver
  8. Watch over your friends and peers. If you see someone in medically dangerous conditions, do not be afraid to reach out to a security guard, police officer, event staff or event volunteer to ask for help. Your health and safety is our first priority!
  9. Do not provide or share alcohol with persons under the age of 21

DRUG SAFETY

Do NOT mix drugs and alcohol. There is no way to anticipate how your body will react to the mixture- the reaction could be very serious or even fatal.

Remember: You never know what you are actually taking. Though distributors may assure you that you are getting a certain drug, there is a high likelihood that this drug has been cut with something else, or is a different drug entirely. This is especially common with pills.

If you do not feel well, seek help immediately! DO NOT SLEEP IT OFF. The symptoms of drug overdose can be the same, more exaggerated, or totally different than those of excessive alcohol use.
Your safety is our first priority.

For friends of people who are engaging in drug use:

  • Monitor your friend, and make sure they are drinking enough water.
  • If they are displaying extreme or out of character behavior, get them help. It could be the result of drugs or excessive alcohol in their system, and their health may be at risk.
  • By speaking up you could save your friend from serious harm, and could even save their life.
