Game Day Guide: Safety Edition

September is an exciting month thanks to the start of a new school year, the promise of cooler, fall temperatures and the return of all things pumpkin spice. But what really makes September such a monumental month is the return of football season. Whether you prefer college or professional, SEC or Big 12, football festivities are always a good time--and sometimes they are too good of a time. Especially in college towns like Austin, safety precautions on game days are incredibly important. Between the heat, the alcohol and the intensity of cheering on the Longhorns, Saturdays can sometimes take a turn for the worse, even if your team comes out on top. Here are some safety tips to ensure you win the day along with your team. 1.Stay hydrated. Your hydration should consist of more than just beer. Sure, koozie-wrapped cans and bottles are staples of game days, but if you want to make it from the tailgate into the actual stadium, try punctuating each alcoholic beverage with a glass of water. Moreover, just because September ushers in cooler temperatures for other parts of the country, Texan Septembers are mostly scorching. If you stay hydrated, even the hottest games will be bearable. 2.Know where first aid stations are. Accidents happen--be it injuries or bouts of dehydration. If you find yourself or someone in your party in a first aid-related crisis, you should know where to go. On UT game days St. David's HealthCare First Aid Stations may be found at the following locations: Bellmont Hall (west side): Sections 1 (lower level) and 105 (upper deck), Reese M. Rowling Hall (east side): Sections 32 (lower level) and 127 (upper deck) and Red McCombs Red Zone (north end zone): Sections 13 (lower level), 18 (middle level) and 117 (upper deck). 3.Stay alert! The day may be all about the Longhorns and winning, but you should also remain aware of your surroundings. It is easy to get separated from or lose you party in the midst of all the burnt orange and white chaos. With so many people in attendance, cell service may be slow or unavailable, so sticking with your group is paramount. Furthermore, just stay aware--crazy, drunken rival fans, distracted drivers and all sorts of other dangers lurk at every game. It's no doubt game days in Austin are majorly fun and incredibly exciting, but a level of caution should always be had. If for some reason you find yourself or someone you know in any sort of victimized state, contact the Rhett Hoestenbach Law Firm at [email protected] or at (512) 472-8865.
