In-house Booze Management Plan Now Supported by Victorian Taxi Association and Ambulance Employees Australia
Most teenage parties spiral out of control as a result of poor alcohol management skills. Alcohol related violence contributes to 90 % of party related trauma.
Parents need to realise that a party for their teenager might have 80 invited guests could soon turn into a nightmare with groups of uninvited youths turning up and becoming aggressive due to alcohol or drug consumption.
Parents need to be tough with their teenagers and lay down some rules that include a proper party plan and an alcohol management strategy.
Major problems can result if parents aren’t involved in the planning stages. This photo is an example.
I am entering into private homes and providing parents with practical alcohol management strategies that include both SUPPLY and BYO events without the obligation of booking security.
I will offer a complimentary safety assessment of the party venue and can answer many tough questions in regards to planning teenage parties and safe transport options
Steve McGhie of Ambulance Employees Australia-Victoria, states that any planned management system that prevents our youth from alcohol abuse, injury, aggression and assault is a great idea. Any reduction of issues at these parties is good for the Victorian public because our paramedics can then respond too emergency cases
Major problems can result if parents aren’t involved in the planning stages. I would suggest that 50% of teenage parties do not hire professional security so it makes sense to offer this basic alcohol management strategy to parents that just need some basic assistance.
The Victorian Taxi Association are supporting U-Nome Security and Safe Partying Australia to spread the word about safe partying and are providing taxi travel vouchers to remind people to consider their transport options and plan ahead.
VTA CEO David Samuel explained “accredited taxi services offer a level of oversight which ensures drivers are appropriately accredited and that vehicles are safely maintained and properly insured.”
“We are concerned about reports from U-Nome Security about the difficulty of identifying illegal transport providers that have recently emerged in Melbourne and the implications for the personal safety of party-goers. We strongly encourage everyone to use accredited taxi booking apps.”
