House parties are pretty dangerous once everyone’s had a few drinks. You never know what someone will knock over while stumbling around. If someone is seriously hurt, you’ll probably need to send all your friends home.
Let’s look at a few ways to ensure that doesn’t happen. It’s unlikely you’ll see any accidents if you follow these basic safety tips. You’ll be able to wake up with a smile the following morning because nobody will want to sue you.
Disposing Of Cigarettes
You will need outdoor ashtrays & receptacles for cigarette butts, which should be placed around your garden carefully. If people smoke during your party, it’s unlikely they’ll walk into the kitchen to throw their waste away.
Something could go wrong if someone throws a lit cigarette into a pile of dry leaves, which might be lying around. Rude guests won’t think twice about throwing their butts behind the couch instead of finding a trash can.
Guests Should Call Uber
Most people who attend your party won’t bring their own cars, but it’s still not enough. Convince everyone they should use Uber instead. If your street lights aren’t covered in Eagle column guards, they’ll be damaged.
Cars will hit walls and vehicles because they’re maneuvering in tight spaces. Guests could be clipped by bumpers when walking into your home. Nobody will get into a car accident if you don’t have dozens of vehicles outside.
Cables Are Safety Hazards
You’ll probably have electric cables running outside for speakers and heaters. Make sure you use a waterproof extension cord in case it rains. You need to protect your party guests from electric shocks.
Make sure people won’t trip over the cables. It’s worth hiding them underneath cord covers, but you’ll also need to think about where to place the equipment. You don’t want cables in the middle of the dancefloor.
Don’t Allow Illegal Drugs
Don’t let anyone bring illegal drugs into your home. You could get into trouble if something bad happens. People who consume dangerous substances are putting their own lives at risk, but they could hurt other guests too.
Unless you know everything about all your friends, it’s impossible to know what they’ll bring. It’s best to tell everyone what’s not allowed. If you find someone taking drugs, kick them out of your home straight away.
Protection From Hot Flames
You might decide to light your outdoor fire pit once the sun goes down, which is great because it will keep your guests warm. Unfortunately, it’s easy to fall into the fire if you’re stumbling around after multiple drinks.
It’s important to have a guard covering the fire pit. If using an outdoor heater, don’t let anyone get close enough to touch it. Not only could they burn their skin, but it could also crash into people standing close by.
You Must Keep Everyone Safe
If you’re inviting everyone to your home for a wild party, it’s your duty to ensure they’re all safe. The tips we’ve talked about today will definitely help prevent a few accidents.
