While hosting an event where alcohol is served, there a whole host of situations that mustn’t be ignored. Firstly, the drinking age in the State of California is 21. That means that no minor under that age can be in possession of beverage that contains over one-half of one percent of alcohol. If it is found that any alcohol was provided to a minor, the event host could be found liable and punishments such as fines, revocation of liquor licenses or even jail time could be levied. Secondly, alcohol leads to lowered inhibitions and when coupled with the excitement of your event and a crowd of people that could lead to rowdy or raucous behavior that could be a disturbance or even a dangerous situation. Don’t find yourself in that position. Consult a security firm to help mitigate any type of problems.
Have Security at the Door
Security can be the first step in making sure your event is fun and safe. Having a trained security professional at the door will prevent access to minors at an adults-only function, prevent unwanted intruders, and keep visibly intoxicated individuals off the premises. Alcohol control laws are not something to be taken lightly, and checking IDs at the door can go a long way to making sure you are in compliance.
Alcohol is meant to be enjoyed responsibly and in moderation, and can add to a pleasurable experience but any event has the potential to turn sour if proper care is not taken to ensure that everyone is conducting themselves appropriately while under its influence. A visible security presence will provide you and your guests with the peace of mind of knowing that if anything were to get out of hand, it will be handled swiftly and discreetly. Simply having security staff around provides an effective deterrent from inappropriate behavior, and if a situation were to arise the offending parties will be removed so everyone else is able to enjoy their time at your event.
