Have a ball at your football tailgate with these safety tips!
Football is back, and it’s time to watch your favorite team in action. As you get ready to pack up the car and head off to your tailgate, bear in mind these safety tips. That way you can ensure that you have a good time without any unfortunate mishaps. Here’s what you need to know about tailgating safely.
Be Wary of Food Temperatures.
Grilled meats, whether they be burgers or hot dogs, are a tailgate staple. However, without a refrigerator, you must be careful about storing the meats. Ensure that you pack a cooler with plenty of ice so that you can keep the meats cold. If it starts to get too warm or if the meat has been out to long, play it safe and toss it out. That way you won’t risk any nasty food poisoning as you try to watch the game.
Exercise Caution Around the Grill.
When you tailgate, you’re usually in a confined space. With dangers of kids running about and corn hole being played, it can be hard to ensure a safe perimeter around the grill. Use extreme caution when grilling. Be vigilant, keep little ones away from the grill, and have a fire extinguisher on hand. That way you can take control of a dangerous situations.
Have Fun Responsibly.
It’s inevitable to avoid alcohol at a football game. However, you don’t have to drink it. Bring plenty of alternative non-alcoholic drinks, and be vigilant of those around you, especially when driving. You never know who may be driving under the influence. Should you choose to drink while at the game, ensure that you do so responsibly. Don’t over do it, balance every drink with an equal amount of water, and always designate a driver, so that everyone can get home safely.
