Spring Break Safety Tips

Basic Information

  • If you’re staying in one of the many hotels or resorts along our beaches, be sure to carry your hotel information, photo identification, and emergency contact information on you at all times.
  • The drinking age is 21 – do not provide alcohol to anyone under the age of 21.
  • Be mindful of law and ordinances related to the possession of open containers in public.
  • Always use “the buddy system” and designate a sober friend when you’re out in a group. Keep an eye out for one another.
  • Drink responsibly and know your limits.
  • Always designate a driver.
  • Never accept a drink from a stranger and never lose sight of your drink.
  • Stay hydrated, especially if you’ve been drinking. The Sun maximizes the effects of alcohol.

When To Call

In Florida, simply dialing 9-1-1 in an emergency connects you to EMS, law enforcement, and the fire rescue.

The 9-1-1 system is for emergencies only – serious vehicle crashes, critical medical situations, crimes in progress, or fire.

Do not call 9-1-1 for non emergency transportation.

If you are unsure if your situation is a true emergency, officials recommend that you let the call taker determine if you need emergency help.
