5 Super Bowl Sunday Safety Tips
Super Bowl XLIX is just a couple days away and we can't decide what we're more excited about. The game, the halftime show, the commercials, or the food...okay, definitely the food. Statistics show that the average American household invites up to seventeen people into their homes to watch the game, making it one of the biggest gatherings and most-watched events of the year according to www.safetyathome.com. Whether you plan on attending one of the many Las Vegas Super Bowl events, enjoying the game at your favorite sports bar, or kicking off your own Super Bowl party, you'll always score a touchdown with safety. Here are 5 Super Bowl Sunday Safety Tips that'll help you enjoy the big day.
1.) Secure the tube! If you're renting some extra TV's to screen the game at home or just upgraded to a TV sized to rival a movie theater screen, be sure that your TV is safely and securely mounted or positioned on the entertainment center, wall or location of your choice.
2.) Bye-bye fragile stuff: Got friends who enthusiastically celebrate the rival team's fumble? You might want to remove your vintage family heirloom vase. Don't leave fragile items where they can be easily knocked over, crashed into, tripped over, or damaged.
3.) Shock Prevention: Bringing in extra electronics for your party? Don't over-load the sockets and use only safety tested power strips and cords. Overloading sockets or using frayed wires could cause serious shortages and lead to a fire. Sure, you want your Super Bowl party to be hot, but not like that. And make sure those extra cords are safely tucked away from your busiest traffic areas. There's nothing worse than having one of your guests spend Super Bowl Sunday in the ER from a fall or injury.
4.) Cook smart: Most people have their parties catered, but if you've spotted some game time Super bowl recipes on Pinterest that you want to try, be sure to cook smart. Don't leave the frying pan un-attended for any period of time (even to catch your team's touch down) as it could lead to grease fires and serious burn injuries. And it may be tempting to grill in the garage or a partially enclosed room so as not to miss the Katy Perry Super Bowl halftime show, but it's best to always grill outdoors to prevent fire or injury.
5.) BYOR (Bring your own ride): Super Bowl Sunday is arguably one of the biggest drinking days of the year as many Super Bowl parties include alcohol. Have a party at home? Please remind your guests (and yourself) to drink responsibly. Have designated drivers or taxi service numbers lined up in advance to help party guests arrive home safely or allow guests to crash at your place and keep them off the road. Enjoying the game at your favorite Las Vegas sports bar? Call a cab. No matter what, never get behind the wheel if you're drinking, even if you feel sober. It's not worth the risk or the loss of lives that could result. Last year 10,000 people were killed by impaired drivers in the US, according to the national non-profit Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD).
