(Spring Break Safety Tips)
Spring break is right around the corner for many schools, and everyone will be flocking to the vacation destinations of their choice. Everyone wants to have a memorable break with their friends and family, but the truth is the spring break environment can be very dangerous. Here are five safety tips you can follow so that your spring break is a fun, safe, and memorable one:
1. Stick with your Friends
Use the buddy system. Make sure you don’t lose track of any of your friends.
2. Don’t Drink and Drive
This is an obvious one, but still a necessary one. Be sure to have a designated driver if you are driving some place far away. Consider downloading a rideshare app like Uber or Lyft if no one can drive.
3. Drink Safely and Avoid Alcohol Poisoning
Everyone wants to party and have a good time during their break, but don’t overdo it! The last thing you need during your break is a trip to the hospital.
4. Avoid Dehydration
Drink plenty of water. Drinking out in the hot sun will make you dehydrated and can put you at risk of heat stroke. Keep a water bottle with you during the day.
5. Stay Safe at your Hotel
Lock up all valuables in your hotel safe, like laptops, wallets, etc. when they’re not in use. Be sure to lock your hotel door when you leave your room as well.
