Every day, 28 people in the United States die in crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to about one death every 51 minutes (CDC). And, drunk driving is only part of the problem. 3 in 10 adults in the United States are heavy or at-risk drinkers. They are drinking at levels that put them at risk for alcoholism, liver disease, and other problems (NIAAA).
As a TAM Card® holder, you can do your part to help cut these numbers. You have the skills to promote safe beverage service and minimize the chances that someone will be over served and get behind the wheel.
April is Alcohol Awareness Month, and this is a great opportunity to showcase your training. This month, let’s talk about it! Help raise awareness about alcohol abuse and encourage people to make healthy choices.
