SAFETY TIP #1 - Don't drink and drive. It goes without saying that the number one cause of car accidents, during the holidays, is intoxicated drivers. Plan ahead so that you and others on the road are safe.
SAFETY TIP #2 - Watch your drink. If you are out having drink this New Year's Eve, make sure you keep an eye on your drink. Having a psychoactive drug or incapacitating agent put into your drink is a very, disturbing but, real possibility.
SAFETY TIP #3 - Dress Appropriately. The Kansas weather is expected to dip as low as 30 degrees, in some areas. Having a jacket, shoes (that keep your feet warm and are comfortable) and other protective clothing items likely will help you have a safer and more enjoyable evening.
SAFETY TIP #4 - Avoid using fireworks and firecrackers, unless each is permitted in your area (click HERE for links to your city's rules and regulations). Additionally, never use sparklers indoors.
SAFETY TIP #5 - Don't leave children unattended. You may want to have some adult-age fun and, understandably so. Arrange childcare for your young ones. If they will be with you, remain aware of their whereabouts, and actions, at all times.
SAFETY TIP #6 - Prevent slip and fall injuries. Many of you will have guests at your home to bring in the new year. Be certain that your walkways, entrances/exits and, all other areas your guest will be in, of your home are free of debris and objects that could cause a slip, trip or fall injury.
SAFETY TIP #7 - Pop champagne safely. When opening champagne bottles make sure to point the bottle and cork away from your eyes and face. Point the bottle away from those gathered too.
