Stay Safe on Super Bowl Sunday

by Staff | January 27th, 2020

Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest drinking events of the year, right behind New Year’s and Thanksgiving. But as much fun as it is to kick back with a beer or two (or more) and watch the game with friends, neighbors, and family, all that alcohol consumption also means Super Bowl Sunday is one of the deadliest days on roads and highways around Indiana and Illinois.

If you plan on attending a Super Bowl party this year, please follow these simple rules to help keep yourself and others safe on the road.

How to Host a Safe Super Bowl Party

Being a great host means more than just keeping your guests happy and having fun. It also means keeping them safe, whether from potential hazards around your home or by preventing them from driving drunk after the party ends. Follow these tips to become a super host at your Super Bowl LIV party.

  • Remove all ice and snow from your curb, sidewalk, porch, or wherever guests walk when entering or leaving your home to prevent slips and falls.
  • Keep pets in a room away from guests. Dogs may injure someone by knocking them over when greeting them, and even friendly dogs and cats may bite or scratch when stressed from too many loud and unfamiliar people in their home.
  • Make sure all guests know how they are getting home. If they plan to drive themselves, take their keys and evaluate them when they leave. If they don’t appear safe to drive, offer to call a cab.
  • Provide plenty of non-alcoholic drink options for all guests, and never serve alcohol to teenaged guests.
  • Check with all guests to make sure there are no food allergies you need to be aware of.
  • Cook all meat to the proper internal temperature to prevent foodborne illnesses, and don’t let food sit at room temperature for more than two hours before returning to the fridge or oven to cool or reheat.
