Spring Break Safety with Steve Wagner
Are you and your friends planning to travel for Spring Break? If you are, you’re joining the hundreds of thousands of other teens who will be traveling south to escape the cold weather and avoid responsibilities for the week off from school.
Wagner Reese wants to paint an accurate and honest picture of spring break and the risks that are associated with trips like these, in the hopes that you will be aware of the dangers going in and take precautions to make your trip safer and more enjoyable.
Our partner, Steve Wagner, took some time out of his day to speak with several area teens and young adults, educating them on the dangers that often accompany spring break trips, especially those that involve underage drinking. While we never encourage underage drinking, we do want to acknowledge that it is a reality on many spring break trips, and hope that our words will encourage those who do choose to drink to at least make good decisions and set themselves up for a safer environment.
In this video, we cover several of the dangers of spring break trips, including falls from balconies, tired and drunk driving, ocean swimming, and acute alcohol poisoning. We also offer some tips for staying safe, and some ways to identify when there is a problem.
If you are with an underage group that is drinking, and you suspect someone has been injured or may be suffering from acute alcohol poisoning, always trust your gut instinct and call 911. Indiana has laws to protect underage drinkers from legal consequences if they are calling paramedics to assist a friend.
