Ensuring A Worry-Free Memorial Day Party
With the holiday weekend fast approaching, it is time to get everything together so that you can host the perfect Memorial Day BBQ. While you may have the fixings, decorations, and guest list ready, have you given safety its deserving attention? The last thing you want is for one accident to ruin your party and leave you with financial complications, which is why we have gathered some essential safety tips for you to follow and relay to your guests.
Memorial Day Safety Tips:
- Food safety should be top of mind. If you do not handle the food properly, you run the risk of gifting each of your guests with food poisoning. Make sure to wash your hands with warm water and soap whenever handling food and be careful of cross contamination. It is also important that you refrigerate food within two hours to avoid the spread of harmful pathogens.
- As you decorate the yard with festive Memorial Day décor, it is important that you think about safety. While you may think there is no way that your American Flag streamers can cause any danger, imagine what would happen if these decorations were too close to the grill and caused a fire. Make sure that there are no combustibles on or near your grill to ensure safety.
- Will you be inviting guests to take a dip in your pool? If so, it is important that you implement safety procedures and never let anyone swim in the pool unattended, especially children. You may want to ask a few adults to switch off supervising for extra precaution.
- Most importantly, if there will be alcohol consumption at your Memorial Day BBQ, think about how guests will return home safely. You may want to call a taxi service such as Uber or Lyft and ask for multiple cars to be ready to take guests home.
