Going Out to A Club
Safety reminders about going out to a club or bar.
Safety if You're Going Out to a Bar or Club
- Do not go out alone. Always go out in groups of 2 or more and travel in well-lit and populated streets.
- Tell your friends/roommates if you’re leaving, with whom, where you’re planning to go and when you’ll see them back at home.
- Do not accept open drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) from others who you do not know or do not trust; this includes drinks that come in a glass.
- Never leave your drink unattended or turn your back on your table.
- Do not drink from open beverage sources like punch bowls, pitchers or tubs.
- Keep your eyes and ears open; if friends appear to be "too intoxicated" for what they have consumed, leave the party or club with them immediately, and return home or seek medical attention. Do not return to the club or party!
- Be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times.
- Know where you need to go and the safest way to get there.
- Trust your instincts: If you sense something is wrong, get away from the situation.
