8th Day of Hanuchristmakwanzakah: American Red Cross Style

Good morning fellow preparedness ninjas! We are now in the final stretch of our "12 Days of Hanuchristmakwanzakah" song and have picked up eight great tips along the way. Let's dig in. Please pull out you accordian, finger cymbals or cozy up next to piano and get ready to join in the singing celebration.

On the eighth day of Hanuchristmakwanzakah, the American Red Cross advised me
Designate a driver
Save a life
Avoid danger while cooking
Red Cross train your babysitterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!
Prevent hypothermia
Don't spread the flu
Please drive safely
And prepare my vehicle for traveling!

Yes, preparedness friends you know the saying, "Don't let friends drive drunk." Well, that includes the holiday season. When you designate a driver who won’t be drinking, you help make sure a good party doesn’t turn into a tragedy. A good host ensures there are non-alcoholic beverages available for drivers. The designated driver should not drink any alcoholic beverages, not even one. Officers will be located everywhere throughout the holiday season and drinking at a party is not worth the jail time or possible loss of life.

You are now one step closer to being thoroughly equipped with tips for the holidays.
