Free alcohol service training available

— The Drug Free Communities Support Program through Plattsburgh Campus and Community Partnership, Plattsburgh Campus Community Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Task Force, Clinton County District Attorney’s Office and the Clinton County STOP-DWI Program through the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend an invitation to businesses and their staff to participate in Training for Intervention Procedures or (TIPS) for restaurants, hotels, bars, nightclubs, and all on-premise liquor license holders.

TIPS, is a dynamic skills-based training program designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking. The program enhances the fundamental “people skills” of servers, sellers and consumers of alcohol. This training gives individuals the knowledge and confidence they need to recognize potential alcohol-related problems and effectively intervene to prevent alcohol-related tragedies. To read more about the benefits of having your staff attend TIPS, please view the following web address http://www.gettips.com

Anyone interested in scheduling a TIPS session for their staff should contact Jessica Mathews, M.S. Ed at 564-3366 or email her at jessica.mathews@plattsburgh.edu as soon as possible to ensure availability.
