Ushering In A New Year – Precautionary Measures That An Apartment Association Can Set

New Year celebrations are great events in every apartment complex, and it’s always the duty of the apartment association to ensure that the party goes on in a safe manner. It’s that time of the year when people wrap up a year’s worth of work and put on their party hats to celebrate endlessly throughout the last week of December.

This is one of the perks of living in an apartment complex, because you’ll get to meet all the other residents and socialize with them during such events. While all residents can keep themselves busy by sharing the responsibilities involved in organizing the New Year party, the members of the managing committee in an apartment association can take precautionary measures to ensure that the party goes on without any hiccups. 

It's Time To Turn On The Celebrations!

Some safety measures that an apartment association can take to celebrate Christmas and New Year parties in a safe way are:

Proper Planning

Any great party needs to be properly planned for it to be a success. Having a haphazard party with the events progressing in a chaotic manner can be very disheartening, and it’s the duty of the apartment association to frame a solid plan and to ensure that things move smoothly. Many responsibilities come along with planning, and these have been listed below.

  • The number of persons attending the event should be properly calculated.
  • Once this number is set, the apartment association should ensure that enough food and drinks are ordered for everyone.
  • The apartment association should decide whether residents can bring along guests. This issue may bring along more complications like parking space for guests, and these issues should also be taken care of.
  • The apartment association should ensure that the party starts at a fixed time and ends at a fixed time in a bid to not cause public nuisance.
  • The sound systems used should be played within the specified decibel levels so that there’s no noise pollution.  

Limited Alcohol

No party is complete without alcohol, but the amount of alcohol served should be minimal. This way, guests of residents can drive home in a safe, and people can have fun without getting drunk and clumsy. It is always important to avoid any unnecessary complications that might rise due to drunken behavior, and keeping a tab on the alcohol served can help in this regard.

Fire Safety

The threat of a fire breaking out is always high in a party where people hardly pay attention to what’s going on around them. The apartment association should take steps to keep the candles and other flammable materials minimal, and steps should also be taken to keep all fabrics away from such candles.

Proper Equipment

Fire extinguishers should always be kept at the ready and first aid kids should also be stored in a nearby place. It’s also wise to hold fire drills a day before the event so that all residents can evacuate the party scene immediately if anything untoward happens.
