Hello everyone!

AbroadFest Safety Tips

If you are going, have a plan
·         Let someone know where you plan to be and when you plan to be back.
·         Use the buddy system: look out for one another and never leave a nightclub/party alone
·         Decide on a meeting point with your friends for when you get separated
·         Have your cell phone charged and able to make calls.

Be smart
·         In case of an emergency situation, please call 112 (911 equivalent) first
·         Take only the cash you need and a credit card in case of an emergency (keep in a safe place)
·         Don’t take expensive electronic devices or belongings if you do not need them
·         Never leave your drink unattended or accept drinks that have not been served in front of you.
·         Don’t accept a ride home from someone you do not know.
·         If you drink alcohol, remember moderation is the key. Eating a good dinner and having water throughout the night is important.
·         Taxis – take a picture of the license or number on the door. Ask for a receipt. Do not take taxis alone.

Be aware
·         Remember: Not everyone goes to the festival to have fun. Some people may not have the best intentions.
·        This type of festivals are notorious for  alcohol consumption and the use of illegal substances. A lot of people are unaware of the negative after effects—including confusion, depression, sleep problems, drug craving, and anxiety—that may occur soon after taking the drug or during the days or even weeks thereafter.

Be a good friend
·         Use the buddy system, take care of each other. Do not let anyone go back home alone. No unattended friend left behind.

Be safe
·         Your safety is ultimately your responsibility. Do not put yourself in vulnerable situations, make sure you are aware of your surroundings and be alert to identify possibly risky situations.

We hope you enjoy your time out safely!
