Plan for a Safe Night Out

Heading out with friends for the night?Make a plan before you head out the door so that you and your friends will have a great time and make it home safely.

If you are going out with friends to a party, some safety suggestions include:

  • Know where you're going and how you're getting there.
  • Plan how to get home - take enough money to share a taxi or ask someone's parent if they will pick you up.
  • Have a Plan B to get home if Plan A falls through.
  • Decide to stay together in a group and look after each other.
  • Don't leave drinks unattended and don't accept a drink from a stranger. Don't take your eyes off your drink.
  • Don't get into a verbal argument if someone aggressively confronts you. Walk away.
  • Don't go off with a person you've only just met. Stay in the public place.
  • Tell your parents/guardian where you will be.
  • Trust your own judgment. Don't let peer pressure sway you into doing anything you don't want to do.
  • Don't get into a car with a driver who has been drinking.
