If you’re celebrating Halloween this weekend, please do so safely. Keep an eye on friends and use the buddy system. Be aware of the signs of an alcohol emergency and know what to do. Alcohol use does not cause sexual assault, but it can be a contributing factor. If you see someone who looks unwell, appears too intoxicated to know what is going on, or you notice something is off, be a prosocial bystander and intervene. Call the Public Safety Communications Center at 607-255-1111, by using Rave Guardian, or 911 for any emergency. Help is always available and remember, Good Sam applies.

Other safety tips: consider the weather forecast before you go. Follow these fire safety tips for your costumes and decorations. Do not carry realistic weapons and, most of all, be respectful to others, which helps to ensure everyone’s safety.
