Millions of Americans will gather to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday. If you plan to host a get-together for the big game that weekend, keep these safety tips in mind to ensure that everyone has a fun and enjoyable celebration.

Be a Responsible Host


  • Hire a professional bartender.
  • Limit your alcohol intake.
  • Encourage your guests not to drink and drive.
  • Stop serving liquor toward the end of the evening.

Remember, you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you served ends up in a drunk-driving crash.

Secure Your TV


  • Do a quick check of your home and make sure all TVs are safely secured and touchdown proofed!
  • If you have a heavier box-style TV, make sure you either secure it to a wall or place it on a low, stable piece of furniture that is appropriate for the TV’s size and weight.
  • Be sure your flat-panel TV is properly secured with a mount that has a safety certification by an independent laboratory.

  • Never overload a socket.
  • Use safety-tested power strips and cords.
  • Never use cords or cables that are worn or frayed.



  • If you are grilling or frying, be sure not to leave the kitchen or grill unattended.
  • Make sure a fire extinguisher is on hand.
  • Check to ensure your home’s smoke detectors are in working order.
  • To help avoid the possibility of food poisoning, do not keep food on the buffet at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

  • Do not give your dog or cat alcohol, chips & dip, guacamole, ice cream, nuts, chocolate, fat trimmings, bones, or caffeinated beverages. These items can cause major health problems for your pets.
  • Be sure to keep your trash secured and away from your pet.
  • Place food on higher counters away from the reach of your pets.
  • If your pet is shy, make sure you have a designated quiet area where they feel safe and secure.
