SAFE PAR­TY­ING

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Reg­is­ter­ing your party with the po­lice gives them the chance to sup­ply ad­vice and re­sources to help in or­gan­is­ing a safe and law­ful event. It also en­sures that if things do go wrong on the night, po­lice have the in­for­ma­tion nec­es­sary to quickly and ef­fec­tively deal with any is­sues. Make en­trance to the party by in­vi­ta­tion only, so there are only peo­ple you know and want at your party and to dis­cour­age gate­crash­ers. Avoid us­ing the in­ter­net, SMS, email dis­tri­bu­tion lists, on­line no­tice boards, so­cial net­work­ing sites or word of mouth to ad­ver­tise your party. Make the start and fin­ish times clear on your in­vi­ta­tion. en­cour­age par­ents to col­lect their chil­dren or for guests to make ar­range­ments for safe trans­port home at the end. Use the par­tysafe non-re­us­able iden­ti­fi­ca­tion wrist­bands that you can get from your lo­cal po­lice sta­tion af­ter you have reg­is­tered your party to make iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of in­vited guests eas­ier. Make sure that any out-of­bounds ar­eas are ad­e­quately se­cured. Re­mem­ber it is your party and you have the right to set the stan­dard of ac­cept­able be­hav­iour and see that it is main­tained. As the host, you may be legally li­able if a guests causes dam­age to prop­erty. Con­sider what type of su­per­vi­sion or se­cu­rity you need for your party? How many do you need? Are they go­ing to check at­ten­dees off a list, stop ex­cess al­co­hol be­ing brought in and deal with un­in­vited or un­ruly peo­ple.
