YES Community Counseling Center’s Partnering In Action Change for Tomorrow Grant Initiative recently provided FREE TIPS Training to eighteen Farmingdale Fire Department Volunteers to ensure safe serving of alcohol during the recent Farmingdale Columbus Weekend Fair.
TIPS (Training Intervention ProcedureS), a skills-based virtual or in-person training designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking. is an approved alcohol training awareness program by the New York State Liquor Authority. TIPS may reduce exposure to alcohol liability lawsuits and reduce penalties for alcohol violations; lower insurance premiums; improve customer service and satisfaction; and promote community safety. The training is part of YESCCC’s Partnering in Action Change for Tomorrow (PACT) initiative to reduce binge drinking, intoxication and drunk driving. PACT’s TIPS Program is supported by Chambers of Commerce in Farmingdale, Massapequa, Levittown; Farmingdale Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention Team (ADAPT); Levittown Community Action Coalition (LCAC); Massapequa Takes Action Coalition (MTAC); Nassau County Police Department; Town of Hempstead; and the Town of Oyster Bay.
If you are a fire department, business or organization that serves or sells alcohol and are interested in registering yourself or your employee(s) for PACT’s FREE in-person or virtual TIPS Training, please contact PACT at email@example.com or (516) 799-3203 x230.
