Hosting a party to view the Big Game?  Have a great time, but please keep in mind your neighborly etiquette and the Social Host Law:  


It shall be unlawful for any person over the age of eighteen who owns, rents, or otherwise controls a private residence, to knowingly allow the consumption of alcohol or alcoholic beverages by any minor or to fail to take reasonable corrective action upon learning of the consumption of alcohol or alcoholic beverages by any minor.

Due to recent events on college campuses, we wanted to remind you of some fire safety tips to help keep you and your housemates safe. 


Take the time to become familiar with your surroundings, and to plan an escape in the event of a fire. You can increase your chance of surviving a fire or an emergency by being prepared. 


Remember, R.A.C.E +E


Rescue and Relocate
