Top Tips For Totally Safe Tailgating

Tailgating is an excellent way to get the morale up before a game, to show your support as a fan, and to have a little more fun than usual with your friends. However, people can be pretty dumb when spirits are high at a tailgating party and get themselves into all kinds of trouble. To make sure that you get through the football season intact, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Don’t take chances with your food

If you don’t want on your buddies being taken to the hospital with food poisoning, then you need to make sure you’re as diligent as you can be on that grill. Meat can be one of the biggest culprits of real stomach trouble and it’s easy to undercook. Learn the safe temperature for whatever meat you’re cooking and use a meat thermometer to ensure that its ready to serve. Even if you like your steak rare, it needs to meet that minimum temperature in the middle to be secure.

Keep road safety a priority

The roads can get hectic before and after a game, so that’s when you need to be most keenly aware of the risk. Make sure that your friends aren’t distracting you from the road and avoid any pre-game drinks if you’re driving there. If you do end up getting in an accident that’s not your fault, then retain a law firm as fast as possible. Your day out can very quickly be ruined if you’re paying the bills that someone else is rightly responsible for. Hopefully, it doesn’t come to that and everyone gets there and home again safely.

Take care of yourself out there

If you’re out in the sun, then you need to make sure you’re not burnt to a crisp. Not only might you have to go home early but let’s not forget the real risk of skin cancer. Ensure you’re choosing the right sunscreen for you that protects from both UVA and UVB rays. Hydration is key, as well. You might be tempted to fill the cooler with beer alone, but a few bottles of water are essential if you don’t want someone suffering from sunstroke on a particularly hot day.

Take care of each other

Everyone who is part of your party should be in charge of looking after the others. If there are drinks involved, then you need to assign a designated driver. It might be a good idea to assign a designated meeting spot as well. Things can get crowded after a game and it’s much easier to meet at a landmark near the stadium’s entrance than trying to meet back at your car. You can avoid the stampede of people by leaving a few minutes early, especially if the result is already pretty clean cut and predictable.

Sports fans can certainly get rowdy, but that doesn’t mean we have to be reckless. Keep the above tips in mind when you’re tailgating to ensure that you and your friends have the game day experience you want instead of a disaster.
